On September 30, 2009, the Upward Bound Math and Science program held its first meeting with guidance counselors from Indiana County area high schools, including the four schools targeted for program services: MC, PM, PL, and UD.

Held in the Foster Hall Oak Room, UBMS program faculty members met with counselors and teachers from these school districts to discuss ways in which collaboration could facilitate program participants to succeed academically and persist to enroll in postsecondary education. Recommendations included ways to increase communication between the UBMS program and the schools, as well as how to employ strategies for success on Pennsylvania standardized tests. Although the UBMS program faculty makes regular visits to local school districts, an annual luncheon event held on IUP’s campus is planned.
