Welcome to the UNI Classic Upward Bound Homepage
The University of Northern Iowa Classic Upward Bound Program will be an agent of change by developing collaborative relationships with students, parents, schools, and the community and by providing services and support which will enhance the academic skills and motivation low income and first-generation students need to complete high school, enter a post-secondary institution, and ultimately obtain at least a Baccalaureate degree.
The UNI Classic Upward Bound Program participates in the State of Iowa Summer Food Service Program. What this program allows Upward Bound to do is to receive funds for meals served during the residential program at the University of Northern Iowa. This helps defray the cost of boarding our students during the summer enrichment program. By following meal requirements, our students are participating in this program for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Their meals are checked for the proper menu items on each plate brought through by each student.
