For the past three years, the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry has participated in this 5 to 6 week Program. Faculty and staff have worked closely with the SUB staff to develop a Chemistry course with laboratory component that fits into their daily summer in residence program.
The purpose of the Sooner Upward Bound (SUB) Program is to generate in program participants the skills and motivation necessary to complete a program of secondary education and to enter and succeed in a program of postsecondary education.
SUB Program participants must be potential first-generation college students, or individuals who at a high risk for academic failure, and have a need for academic support in order to pursue successfully a program of education beyond high school.
The Biochemistry classes are composed of 15 to 20 high school Sophomores and Juniors from U.S. Grant, Northwest Classen, Capitol Hill, Douglas, and Star Spencer High Schools in Oklahoma City.
