The Wesleyan Upward Bound Math-Science Program is in full swing here on the Wesleyan campus. The year-round program, which serves low-income, first-generation and under-represented rising freshman through high school seniors, serves 90 to 100 students during the academic year and approximately 70 students during its six-week summer session.
The program’s director, Teshia Levy-Grant ’00 was a first-generation student at Wesleyan. “I recognize the need,” she said. “I know what it’s like to try to navigate the education system, and I want to help these students succeed.”
The grant-funded program relies on the support of volunteer tutors, many of whom are Wesleyan students. (Photos by Laurie Kenney)
