BU UB & UBMS Students Recognized by U.S. Department of Education

Several Boston University Upward Bound and Upward Bound Math & Science students were recognized by the Student Services department of the U.S. Department of Education. Below is an excerpt from the Student Services newsletter. You can read the full Student Services newsletter, including the below story, here.

UB students

Participants in the TRIO Upward Bound (UB) and Upward Bound Math and Science (UBMS) projects at Boston University (BU) are shining examples of how hard work can lead to academic accomplishment. In fact, a UB or UBMS student was the valedictorian or salutatorian at five of the projects’ six targeted high schools. These five achievers aren’t resting on their laurels, but are going on to begin postsecondary studies at top institutions like Harvard University, Bryn Mawr College, and BU and will participate in programs like the Posse Scholars and BU’s Thomas M. Menino Scholars program. The students credit UB and UBMS with exposing them to rigorous academic opportunities, cultural activities, meaningful friendships, and the challenge to face new adventures and conquer their fears.

Undergraduate students at the School of Education benefit from the community feel of a small school along with the resources of a large university. Our students are in the field in both urban and suburban schools as early as their first year at SED.

Graduate Students

Talented graduate students from around the world prepare to become teachers, counselors, administrators, and more in as little as one year at the School of Education. Our students engage in diverse aspects of education both in the classroom and the field.
