Upward Bound Mission

Rochester Community and Technical College Upward Bound's mission is to make higher education a reality!

Rochester Community and Technical College Upward Bound is committed to providing a positive and easily accessible learning atmosphere in which participants will further their potential and develop to the full extent of their abilities to succeed in high school and college.

The Upward Bound staff is dedicated to developing a strong sense of self-esteem, confidence, and motivation in students by providing support, encouragement, and positive role models. Many opportunities for academic and personal enrichment are made available to low-income and potential first-generation college students who otherwise may not have the option to pursue higher education.
