UMass Boston – Upward Bound Math-Science

Our program uses time-tested TRIO approaches and strategies, such as building a trusting community of peers, mentors who have experienced similar barriers to higher education, and faculty who get involved in the program beyond the classroom. We challenge the students intellectually and in many other ways while supporting them with excellent role models, caring adults and stimulating speakers, teachers and experiences. We navigate with them the various locations involved: their high school and city, our sponsoring institution of UM Boston, and our host campus of Noble and Greenough, all such different places.
