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.
