Upward Bound Programs (UBP) are federally funded programs that assists Omaha high school students in achieving academic skills and personal growth necessary for successful completion of high school and admission to a four-year college/university. Upward Bound programs supplement the student's high school experience with academic preparation, career exploration, and self-development opportunities. These programs at Creighton University are for students who demonstrate a strong desire to complete higher education.
