Marian’s Upward Bound Math and Science summer program to kick off June 18

June 8, 2018

Marian University’s Upward Bound Math and Science (UBMS) program’s 2018 summer session will be held June 18 through July 27, primarily on the university’s main campus. This non-residential program will welcome approximately 50 ninth- through 11th-grade students from both the Fond du Lac and North Fond du Lac School Districts.

Academic activities offered during the UBMS Summer Session will include: applied coursework in mathematics, science, writing for media, science fiction literature, College 101, and American Sign Language. Participants will be involved in multiple educational enrichment activities such as workshops led by local educators and professionals, tours of local businesses, and visits to 2-year and 4-year area colleges.

Marian University students will serve as mentors and teaching assistants to the UBMS program participants.

At the conclusion of the summer program on July 27th, students will showcase their summer projects and share their learning experience with their families, members of the Marian University community, and other program supporters from the Fond du Lac area.

Marian University’s UBMS program is in its sixth year of operation in Fond du Lac. It is a federally-funded program through the U.S. Department of Education. Its goals are to:

  • strengthen the math and science skills of low-income, first-generation potential college students;
  • encourage these students to pursue postsecondary degrees in STEM professions; and
  • ensure that participants are well-prepared for a successful college experience and careers in the fields of mathematics and science.
