UBMS Summer Program at NMU

Northern Michigan University Upward Bound Math-Science offers a summer program that engrosses students in an unforgettable educational experience.

They will also have the opportunity to take an educational trip at the end of their summer experience. 

Schedule of Events

The upcoming schedule of events is still TBD. All events and activities will be sent to students via email when they are available.

Our goal is to provide the highest quality program in a safe environment for every participant.  Please assist us in maintaining a safe and enjoyable environment by following the following code of conduct

We will:

  • Learn and follow the rules.
  • Be respectful of the feelings and properties of others.  Show others courtesy and treat them the same way that we want to be treated.

  • Communicate with others in an appropriate manner. We will not use foul words, vulgarity, or harassing language.
  • Never verbally or physically harm other participants and/or staff.

  • The possession or use of alcohol and other drugs is prohibited.

Housing and Overnight Rules:

  • All curfews will be followed.
  • Participants in an overnight program are not permitted to be housed in the same room with an adult unless the person is the minor’s parent or legal guardian.
