Rebecca Parker is the Director of Upward Bound at Ivy Tech Community College of Muncie. This program helps students succeed in high school and get into a college of their choice by providing workshops, tutoring, summer classes, and cultural experiences to help students grow in character, scholarship, and leadership. Upward Bound serves students who are either low income, academically at-risk, or who are potential first generation college students. Before building this program at Ivy Tech, Rebecca co-created an innovative STEAM learning program for Muncie Public Library that won a national award from the American Library Association. She believes in the power of good ideas and is driven by a desire to achieve equity in an inequitable world.
