The University of Iowa will participate in the 2021 National First-Generation College Celebration by holding events throughout the entire week of November 8 - 12, 2021

The purpose of this week is to celebrate those who hold the first-generation identity at the University of Iowa. In addition, we hope to use this time to provide targeted programming and training sessions that seek to inform and educate the campus community, support first-generation students in their academic and career endeavors, and ensure that students ultimately succeed at the University of Iowa. All faculty, staff and students (undergraduates and graduate/professional students) are invited to participate in the celebration!
