Senator George Mitchell: Celebrating 50 years of Upward Bound Bowdoin College

September 16, 20157:30 PM – 9:00 PM
Memorial Hall, Pickard Theater

Senator Mitchell '54 has long been committed to college access for all students, and has always kept a particular focus on his home state of Maine, even while serving in national and international roles. While serving in the US Senate, Mitchell was a champion of
Upward Bound/TRIO, ensuring that annual appropriations and federal support remained robust.  His own Portland based Mitchell Institute continues to support hundreds of underrepresented Maine students each year.

The national Upward Bound/TRIO program was created by President Johnson in 1965 to address barriers to higher education that confront low-income students as part of the War on Poverty. In 1966 Bowdoin College created the first Upward Bound program in Maine, putting the college among the lead institutions to sign on to this national effort. More than 2,000 students from some of the state?s most impoverished communities have been served by Bowdoin College's Upward Bound program since its inception. Nearly all are the first in their family to attend college.
 
Senator George Mitchell will keynote this special evening to commemorate 50 years of Upward Bound at Bowdoin College and to celebrate the important and highly successful work Upward Bound continues to do here in Maine.

Open to the public, free tickets will be required. 
Tickets available at Smith Union Information Desk on September 3 to Bowdoin ID holders. Tickets available at the Smith Union Information Desk on September 9 to the general public.
