Mission Statement

The mission of the Southwestern Oklahoma State University Upward Bound Program is to empower 76 participants with the academic skills and motivation necessary to graduate from high school, enter and succeed in a postsecondary education program.

In order to meet its commitment for student success, the Upward Bound Program recruits qualified students and will provide tutoring, personal, career and academic counseling to students on a continuous basis throughout the academic year and summer component. Saturday Academies are provided bi-monthly during the academic year to enrich the students’ school curriculum. A six-weeks summer component is conducted to provide students with an intense academic and cultural experience, while preparing them for college life.
