Upward Bound (UB) is a federally funded TRIO college access program designed to help eligible high school students to successfully complete high school and succeed in college, earning a two- or four-year degree (associates or bachelor's). Funded entirely by a grant from the United States Department of Education, the program has been continuously funded at Bloomsburg University since 1978 and serves eligible students in grades 9-12 at eight local high schools (Berwick, Mahanoy, Milton, Mount Carmel, North Schuylkill, Pottsville, Shamokin, and Shikellamy) located in Columbia, Northumberland, and Schuylkill counties in northeastern/central Pennsylvania.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, ALL UPWARD BOUND SERVICES AND EVENTS ARE BEING PROVIDED VIRTUALLY UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. Students and family members should pay attention to email and social media announcements regarding planned on-campus and in-school events.
Your health here goes well beyond flu shots and a health form. Yes, we’re set up with accessible medical care, a clinical staff and counseling services. But we’re also proactive. And that begins with Healthy Husky — our health and wellness initiative that not only can help you stay or get into shape but will introduce you to many new healthy hacks for managing stress, the importance of naps and healthy eating on the go.
BU's Student Health Center provides caring, professional, convenient support for students. The SHC is staffed by registered nurses, nurse practitioners and a part-time physician who treat students by appointment. Unlimited visits at no additional charge upon payment of health and wellness fee each semester.
There are many reasons students reach out to obtain counseling services, some of which may include: anxiety, depression, relationship concerns, adjustment difficulties, family struggles, unhealthy eating, and exposure to trauma events. Our services are based on a short-term model of treatment, in which sessions are provided on bi-weekly basis. If you are seeking a longer-term treatment approach, or weekly session, the Student Counseling Center can assist in finding appropriate resources.
While encouraging self-advocacy, our office works in partnership with members of the university community to provide access to individuals with disabilities.

- Provide reasonable accommodations to students with disabilities in order to enrich educational experiences and student success
- Educate the campus community, including faculty, staff, students, and administrators, on equitable treatment of individuals with disabilities
