100 Days, 100 Celebrations
This summer, the Council for Opportunity in Education challenges every Upward Bound project on every campus to 100 Days, 100 Celebrations — a campaign that envisions 100 events at institutions, campuses, and on social media. The 50th
Anniversary of Upward Bound is a cause for great celebration. This is an occasion for Upward Bound projects to share with their institutions and communities the valuable contributions that Upward Bound has made in the lives of low-income, first-generation students and students with disabilities. We expect that you will actively engage with your state and regional associations, and of course, with your own alumni.
Explore the history and critical role that Upward Bound plays in college access and success for low-income, first-generation students by exploring our
