New Summer Survey

Because our Summer plans have been so drastically altered by the COVID-19 Pandemic, we will not be having an on-campus Summer Component this year. We will have an online Summer Component instead.

Since this is a major change, we figure that some students who were coming this summer won’t want to participate and some who thought they couldn’t participate in an on-campus experience might wish to participate online. sp we are doing a new summer survey.

We have a web page telling why you should participate in the TRIO Upward Bound Summer 2020 component.  At the bottom of the page is the link to the new summer survey, You are required to complete the survey whether you plan to participate in the summer component or not, so read the web page and decide, then fill it out.
Watch this video as Miss Jamaica breaks down what to expect from the web page and why it’s important to do this.

Do this now, while we have your attention. The deadline is Friday, May 15.

You might have questions:

Q: I did the old summer survey back in January or February, do I need to do the new one?

A: Yes. The new summer survey asks new questions geared toward online course delivery. We need that information.

Q: I said I was not coming this summer because I couldn’t commit to the on-campus requirements. Now that it is online, I’d like to participate. Can I participate even if I said I wasn’t coming before?

A: Yes, of course. We’d love for you to participate.

Q: I said I was coming this summer on the old survey, but since it’s gonna be online I’m not really interested, can I skip this summer?

A: Read the info here before you make a decision. The short answer is that you don’t have to do the summer component, but there are consequences for not participating. For example, you will no longer be eligible for the UM Upward Bound scholarship if you don’t participate this summer.

Q: Do I really have to fill this out even if I know I’m not participating?

A: Only if you want your final stipend.
