Faculty and Staff

We are in the process of developing a list of staff and faculty who identify as having been first-generation students. These faculty and staff are provided with a button (I'm the First) and a card with talking points. These faculty and staff will be invited to a reception later in the fall where we will talk with first generation students about resources, programs, and opportunities.
