Urban Pipeline Program

Program Overview

The UPP is an eight-week, comprehensive, academic, experiential, mentoring and professional- and social- development summer enrichment program. Guiding the program is the "Theoretical and Conceptual Framework Model for Success" (Awe and Bauman, 2010) that was developed by drawing from the literature on higher education student success and further informed by the Educational Policy Institute's Pathways to College Network Framework.

Although the program is only eight weeks long, the COP continues to track participants longitudinally. One of the methods for accomplishing this is by forming a pre-pharmacy club that brings the students back to the college to continue with the pharmacy socialization process through increased interaction with faculty and student mentors.
