Upward Bound Math Science Regional Center at TRIO – Upward Bound Math Science Regional Center

UPBWichita State University, a Kansas Board of Regents institution with a yearly enrollment of over 15,000 students, proudly hosts the Upward Bound Math-Science Center, commonly referred to as the “Galaxy Experience”. The Center serves high school freshmen-seniors who have the potential for success and demonstrated talent in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Services and activities undertaken by the Center are designed to increase post secondary education persistence and the capacity for students to pursue majors in STEM. It is the hope of program staff that emphasis on such courses of study will lead to careers in these areas. Fifty participants from Kansas receive academic instruction, research opportunities, tutorial support, career counseling, and computer instruction, mentoring, and leadership training. Students participate in a six week summer residential program; bi-weekly activities during the academic year; and weekly tutorial sessions during the summer and academic year. The Center strives to improve leadership and study skills, provide academic and career advising, provide a high quality STEM related curriculum, ensure cultural exposure, afford opportunities for personal development, and offer workshops and seminars that enhance academic and social growth.
