First-Generation Faculty & Staff Group

We are inviting interested faculty and staff to participate in a first generation faculty and staff group. In the fall of 2017, we held a series of three focus groups to discuss the formation of this group and future events. We invite anyone who identifies as a first generation student themselves or feels strongly about supporting first generation students.
