VUB Stands Up Against Intolerance 

The staff and faculty of VUB acknowledge that current events may leave us feeling sad, afraid, and angry. We stand committed to supporting social justice and rejecting all types of injustice that are so often afflicted against people based upon ignorance and hatred. 

VUB provides Montana's veterans with services while honoring their class, educational attainment, gender identity, neuro-cognitive ability, personality, physical ability, political identification, religious affiliation, sexual orientation, and myriad identification markers that often leave many of us feeling vulnerable to the threat of discrimination.

Now, more than ever, we strive to offer you assistance, education, and mentoring while honoring who you are, who you feel yourself to be, and who you seek to become.

VUB ̶ standing up for equity.

VUB ̶ moving upward toward justice.


For more than 25 years, Veterans' Upward Bound (VUB) has provided a statewide network of free classes, services and support to Montana's veterans. Whatever the academic or transition needs, VUB is here to help veterans plan and prepare for their next step.

VUB is currently offering live-online classes during the Covid-19 pandemic. Our July session runs from July 13th through July 30th. Visit our Staff Directory to contact individual staff.

VUB is sponsored by MSU-Northern in Havre, and our offices are hosted on the MSU-Billings campus.

Veterans Upward Bound has been a very rewarding and helpful program for me. The instruction was extremely helpful in returning and refining my skills in math and writing, which had been stagnant since leaving school a while ago. VUB was a great experience and made me want to go to college and be successful.
