U. of San Francisco Criticized for Evicting Upward Bound

April 18, 2011

The University of San Francisco is being criticized for its decision to evict the Upward Bound program that has operated on its campus since 1966, The San Francisco Chronicle reported. The program provides college preparation services for low-income college students, and many advocates for the disadvantaged in the area are saying that the university is abandoning its Jesuit values by kicking out the program. University officials say that it's nothing against the program, but they need its space (and the space of other groups being asked to leave) for other purposes.
