Upward Bound Programs Have Roots in Fond du Lac Co.

In 1964, 17 institutions in various parts of the country received federal funding to operate pilot Upward Bound programs. Together, those institutions served a total of 2,061 participants during their first year of operation. 

Ripon College, located in Fond du Lac County, operated one of the original 17 UB programsThe program’s first summer session ran from June 28 through August 6, 1965. It served 32 youths, largely of Native American descent. 

The program at Ripon College had provided services to local students until 1976. 

Today, as the 50th anniversary of the Upward Bound Program is being celebrated across the nation, Marian University's Upward Bound Math and Science program is continuing this legacy of providing educational opportunities to local students. There are currently 566 Upward Bound projects serving about 42,000 students across the United States.
