The University of Northern Iowa Classic Upward Bound Program will be an agent of change by developing collaborative relationships with students, parents, schools, and the community and by providing services and support which will enhance the academic skills and motivation low income and first-generation students need to complete high school, enter a post-secondary institution, and ultimately obtain at least a Baccalaureate degree.


Happy Holidays

We are beginning the planning phases of our summer 2018 residential camp on UNI's campus! We are excited for this summer due to the great success of last year. Thank you to parents/guardians, scholars, and residence/teaching staff AND UNI faculty and staff for making it a very memorable summer. We will be sending out summer participation forms to scholars soon so please be sure to check your mail and often to get updates. The summer bridge program will also take place starting in June for graduating seniors.
