Santa Clara University's First-Generation College Celebration
The LEAD Scholars Program is for first-generation college students (students whose parents did not graduate from a 4-year college or university) focused on academic success and community engagement at Santa Clara University.
For the 2018 First-Generation College Celebration, the LEAD Scholars Program will host an on-campus event. They plan to have a table at Benson Memorial, from 11 AM-3 PM, distribute LEAD Scholar buttons, and "I'm First-Gen" placards for faculty and staff to display. They will also have an informational session that will include updates on the LEAD Scholars Program as well as a panel of first-generation college students, faculty and staff. The panel will also include a highlight of a recent school-wide climate survey and opportunities for a Q & A from 12 PM-1 PM with two faculty members and five LEAD Scholars.
