MSU’s Upward Bound program seeks applicants to help bring students support and success

Morehead State University makes a life-changing impact on people when they come to campus as college students. However, programs like MSU’s Upward Bound helps bring that positive change to students even sooner.

As summer 2019 approaches, Upward Bound, the preparatory academic program for high school students, is currently accepting applications for summer instructors of core courses (math, science, English) and electives, as well as positions for resident supervisors and resident advisors. The priority application deadline is Friday, March 1.

A bachelor’s degree is required for instructor and resident supervisor positions. Applicants for resident advisor positions must be currently enrolled college students. Upon hiring, there will be a staff orientation on April 30. Resident supervisors will work from May 20 through July 5 and resident advisors will begin one week later on May 28 and work through July 5. Instructors will report to class to teach from June 10 through July 5.

Matt Hyden, associate director for Upward Bound programs, said whether it is a resident advisor that gets to interact with students from day 1 or an instructor who gets to provide knowledge that will help them through high school, it is amazing to see how this program changes students for the better.

“By the end of the six weeks that they are with us, you will notice that pretty much every student we have has improved in at least one way, but probably 10 or 12 ways,” Hyden said. “You get to really see those students grow into functional young adults.”

The Upward Bound Programs at Morehead State University are seeking applicants for the following positions: Resident Advisors, Resident Supervisors, and Summer Core & Elective Instructors. More information can be found at
