Why do we do what we do?

The TRIO and Precollege Programs at UWGB have been in continuous operation for the better part of three decades. Each of the programs strive to help students discover and realize a college education. During their lifetime these programs have served thousands of middle and high school students. Among these are students who have gone on to become doctors, research scientists, engineers, authors, teachers, etc. It is the goal of Upward Bound, RCMS, and Precollege Programs to help students successfully find and graduate from a college.

When do these program take place?

TRIO Programs

The Upward Bound program at UWGB offers tutoring labs during the academic year to its high school students at East, Preble, Southwest, and West High Schools in Green Bay, Wisconsin. Additionally, the Upward Bound program takes its students on tours to colleges around the Midwest throughout the year, provide assistance in finding and filling out college financial aid applications, help students find and complete ACT and SAT prep courses if desired, take students on various community service activities throughout the year. During the summer Upward Bound brings its students to UWGB for a six-week residential learning experience where they live in the dorms and take courses from veteran teachers and university professors.

The RCMS program at UWGB runs a six-week residential program concurrently with Upward Bound. In addition to a collegiate experience and challenging courses during its summer session, RCMS provides its students with assistance in applying for financial aid, in applying to colleges, and in bettering ACT and SAT scores through prep courses. As RCMS students come from 20 selected schools in Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Michigan its academic-year interaction with its students relies more on technology using online learning environments, courses, and ACT prep services.

Both programs run their summer programs, June 28 through August 8 for 2020.

Precollege Programs

The Precollege Programs at UWGB consist of two-week, residential experiences at UWGB where students live in the dorms on campus and attend classes during the week. Students participate in one of three programs: The Academic Writing and Research Experience (AWARE) for rising 12th graders, Stars of the Future for rising 7th,8th, and 9th graders, or STEM Exploration (for students participating in the GBAPS FMS SAS program). All three run concurrently, from June 14 through June 26 for 2020, and share dorm staffs.
