About Us

Who We Are

In 1996, Robert Morris College was awarded its first Upward Bound grant and shortly thereafter in 1998, was awarded its first Talent Search grant. Just as Robert Morris has grown from a small college to a major university, its Upward Bound and Talent Search programs grew exponentially in the service and support we provided to our students and schools. Over the years, we’ve assisted thousands of students in making their post-secondary ambitions a reality. We continue to exceed our program objectives by committing to excellence in the service delivery in both college access and personal support of our participants.

Vision Statement
