About Upward Bound


​​​Where Preparation Meets Opportunity​​

"The CMU Upward Bound Program is a rigorous, pre-college academic experience for promising, economically-disadvantaged students within two Detroit Public High Schools.  The program assists first generation, college-bound students in developing the necessary skills for academic success, high school graduation and transition to post-secondary education."

The program is part of the Multicultural Center on campus and under the Office for Institutional Diversity.

Upward Bound is funded by the U.S. Department of Education as one of the TRIO initiatives​.​
