Marian University’s Upward Bound Math and Science Program (UBMS) is a part of the federally funded TRIO programs, whose purpose is to educate potential first generation college students and/or low income high school students in relation to graduation from high school, transition to college, and the pursuit of post-secondary degrees in mathematics and science. This purpose aligns with the teaching mission of Marian University and fosters relationship with the local and global community.

The UBMS program is designed to generate the skills and motivation necessary for success in education beyond high school. Free services during the academic year and summer are offered in five areas: academic support and achievement; college enrollment planning; career exploration; financial education; and personal development.

Participants engage in STEM-based collaborative hands-on activities that foster the development of technical and intellectual maturity needed in college and professional settings.

The program will serve 62 local high school students from the Fond du Lac and North Fond du Lac school districts annually. Participants are students who have a willingness to explore the STEM fields – Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.
