1stGen@Iowa Celebration Day

Fall 2020 
Unfortunately our Fall 2020 event has been cancelled. We hope to bring this event back at some point throughout the 2020-2021 academic year.

UI Faculty, Staff, & Students!

Do you identify as a first-generation student or advocate or supporter of first-generation students?
Were you a first-generation student in college and now a UI faculty or staff member?

Wear your 1stGen@Iowa t-shirt on (2020 - 2021 academic year date tbd) and
join us as we celebrate being a 1stGen@Iowa!

Didn't get a t-shirt? Limited sizes (M, L, XL) are available. Contact Angie Lamb for more information.


Wondering if you're a first-generation student?
At the University of Iowa, first-generation students are those students who do not have a parent(s) or guardian(s) who completed a four-year degree.

Are you faculty or staff and want to learn how you can better support first-generation students?
