U. of San Francisco to Keep Upward Bound

April 19, 2011

The University of San Francisco has announced an agreement to continue sponsorship of Upward Bound, a program that helps prepare low-income students for college. The university has sponsored the program for more than 40 years, but recently said it would evict the program because of space needs, setting off protests from some on and some off the campus. Under a new arrangement, faculty members at the university will play more of a role in the program, the university will provide classroom space, and some administrative functions will be moved off campus. But the university has pledged to continue sponsorship of the program.
