Mission & Vision


The goal of the University of Dayton Upward Bound Program is to increase the rate at which students complete their secondary education and enroll in andgraduate with a postsecondary degree.


To merge three entities (DPS, UD, and UB) to provide academic and college-based support to increase students’ educational performance in order to produce students who successfully transition from high school to college. 

Our ultimate goal is to produce transformative adults who actively pursue and obtain professional careers while simultaneously becoming visionaries to make their own individual marks on the blueprint of the world.
