Thank you to all the people who played a role with the grant writing process!  Without you this wouldn't have been possible.  We truly appreciate your guidance, love, and support in our mission and in our service to first-generation students!  Once again, thank you!

What is Upward Bound (UB)?

The Upward Bound (UB) project at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse is dedicated to the preparation for, admission to, and successful completion of a college degree for eligible high school students.

Through academic support, guided experiences, volunteer and job shadow opportunities, and much, much more, UB students are four times more likely to graduate from college than their peers from similar background.  

Summer Upward Bound

Thank you for your interest in working with us this summer.  At this time we have filled all our summer staff positions.

We will have our Milwaukee trip meeting at 1:30pm in the classroom (on the first floor of Eagle Hall-around the corner from the front desk, past the laundry room). After the meeting students will be excused to clean and clear out their rooms and move-out. Once they have been cleared from Eagle staff of their room and turned in their key they may leave (as early as 2pm).

Pick up for students is as follows:
