CU Upward Bound (CUUB) is the longest-running of CU Boulder's pre-college outreach programs. Like all Upward Bound programs, CUUB is funded by the US Department of Education to help low income and first-generation college going students succeed in high school and prepare for postsecondary success. But the CUUB program sharpens the focus of a typical Upward Bound with its unique mission to challenge, protect and connect the primarily indigenous student population we serve. We are dedicated to preparing our students for achieving their own vision of "postsecondary success," on their own terms, and teaching them that they do not have to sacrifice any part of themselves to prosper in higher education.
