2019 First-Generation College Celebration
The University of Central Florida's Knights First Generation Program will celebrate the presence and experiences of first-generation students, faculty and staff during the university's inaugural First Generation Awareness Week from Nov. 4-8.
At the University of Central Florida, one in every four undergraduate students identify as first-generation. The entire campus community is invited to help celebrate first-generation experiences throughout this week and the entire academic year.
Some activities include a First-Generation Student Resource Expo, Career & Employer Panel, and a university-wide Open House. The aim of First Generation Awareness Week is to increase awareness around serving first-generation students and to connect first-generation students with university resources, faculty, staff, and administrators.
