First Gen Fellows also referred as “First Generation College Students” is a program that provides individualized support to students who identify as first in their family to graduate from college. The program is an initiative lead by students to support the disproportionately small numbers of first-generation college admitted students to graduation.
The cohort of students that self-identify into the program benefit from various support programs and services, and extensive campus referral networks.
Each quarter FGF hosts a series of workshops that address the academic and professional needs of the students. This is done in collaboration with various units on campus. The topics of the workshops are based on the current curriculum cohort model that moves students through 3 phases: Navigation, Empowerment, and Leadership.
