UC Riverside’s First-Generaton campaign is fully under way. First-Generation is a UC-wide initiative that focuses on recognizing first-generation college faculty, staff, and students.

The initiative is how holding “First-Friday” conversations over lunch. The next meeting is scheduled for Friday, Nov. 3 from 2-3:30 p.m. at Hinderaker 0154.

The project strives to bring attention to the raising rate of first-generation college-bound students.  The initiative supports and facilitates students to be successful in every aspect of their lives. The campaign works alongside first-generation professors to connect with the students through peer mentoring, and also creates a network of resources and programs that are now easily offered to first-generation students.

First-Generation will hold meetings the first Friday of every month. Feel free to take your lunch or a snack.
