Mission Statement

Upward Bound is a federally funded grant program through the United States Department of Education.   It is incorporated within the Diversity and College Access department at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point.  The purpose of the Upward Bound Program is to prepare those students who are economically and socially underrepresented in higher education due to their families’ educational background and income level to enter and complete postsecondary education of choice. 



University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point Upward Bound will serve as an avenue in helping students excel in all areas of life.  It strives to produce the motivation and skills necessary for low income, first generation students to successfully complete postsecondary education and have a positive impact on their families and communities as a result of their participation in educational, social, and cultural services offered by our program.  We make success stories!
