2018 First-Generation College Celebration

The University of Iowa plans to participate in this year's First-Generation College Celebration by expanding the celebration to an entire week (November 5 - 9). Several departments will host first-generation themed events during the week such as coffee with a Dean, first-gen discussions included in weekly meetings, motivational emails to students, etc.  Additionally, there will be campus-wide communication sent from senior leadership, social media campaigns, stories disseminated across campus media outlets, and distribution of swag.

The major event, held on November 8, will feature two screenings of the "First-Generation" movie followed by two facilitated discussions- one geared toward students and the other for faculty and staff. As events are finalized, they will be posted here!
