“EDUCATION IS NOT PREPARATION FOR LIFE-EDUCATION IS LIFE ITSELF”
--John Dewey (1859-1952)
 
Veterans Upward Bound (VUB) is a federal TRIO program funded by the U.S. Department of Education. The aim of VUB at University of Louisiana at Lafayette is to provide academic and support services to 120 eligible veterans. These services are provided to economically and educationally disadvantaged and physically disabled veterans who require skills and motivation necessary to complete educational requirements, enroll and succeed in post-secondary education.

Assistance to the participating veterans is provided through an integrated academic year (fall, spring and summer), which runs concurrently to that of the university. Classes in science, mathematics, English grammar and literature, Spanish, French, computer literacy, internet and career/personal development are offered to the participants. In addition to improving and strengthening academic skills the program also provides individual and group counseling, career counseling/assessment, cultural/social enrichment, dissemination of educational and financial aid information and assistance with admission and financial aid applications.
