The Office of the Provost and the Division of Student Affairs are currently seeking faculty members who would be willing to serve as a mentor to a first-generation student.
As part of the university’s effort to promote a culture of inclusion, the university is developing resources to assist first-generation college students. These students bring tremendous expertise and contribute to the life of the university. They also, in many cases, have less access to what some researchers describe as the “hidden curriculum” of college life.
If interested in participating in the mentor program, faculty should complete the online form by Sept. 27. Please note: you are not committing to anything by completing the link; you are simply indicating potential interest and will be contacted later this month to explore your interest level and availability.
In conjunction with this initiative and National First-Generation Day, there will be a series of social and academic events focusing on first-generation students, Nov.7-8. Learn more on the following websites:
