DetailsWe are excited to announce the opening of the First Generation Student Gateway and would like to invite you to the Gateway Open House. With its home in the Office of Academic Multicultural Initiatives (OAMI), the First Generation Student Gateway serves as a starting point to get connected to resources and support for students who are the first in their families en route to a bachelor's degree and their allies. The open house will be on October 2 from 4-6 in OAMI. Students, faculty, and staff alike are welcome to attend, enjoy some snacks, and engage with the space.
Are you first? Symposium
In April 2016, first-gen students and their allies at U-M sponsored an Are You First? Symposium to help lower the barriers first gens may encounter without a family roadmap for the college experience. It featured several sessions, panel discussions and speakers to raise awareness about first-gen students on campus, provide networking opportunities and ensure success among first-gen students at U-M.
First-Generation Celebration Dinner
Every fall and spring semester the First-Generation College Students@Michigan student group hosts a First Gen Dinner that brings first-generation students together to celebrate their successes and share ideas, experiences and resources with one another.
