Resources for Faculty & Staff

Faculty and staff have an important role in the success of first-generation college students, and everyone on campus can be part of our campus-wide efforts to better support first-gen students. Not sure how to do this or what your role is? Consider joining an upcoming training or workshop, learn about strategies you can utilize, both in and outside of the classroom, to make a difference for first-gen students on the UI campus, browse our extensive compilation of first-gen related research and best practices, or listen in as first-gen students discuss their personal experiences in our One of Your People Project videos (coming soon!). 

Contact us for more information on first-gen students at the University of Iowa, the role that faculty and staff have in first-generation students' success, or to recommend resources to be considered for inclusion on this site.
