2020 First-Generation College Celebration

On Monday, November 9, the campus community came together to celebrate the University of Nebraska Kearney's (UNK’s) second annual First Gen Day, an event that showcased the success of first-generation faculty, staff, and students and highlighted the opportunities available at UNK. The program included a T-shirt giveaway and photo booth, as well as a panel discussion promoting UNK’s Study Abroad, National Student Exchange, Undergraduate Research, and Experiential Learning programs. The event was highlighted by the presentation of UNK’s inaugural Trailblazer and Friend of First Gen awards, which recognize an outstanding first-generation student and a faculty or staff member who goes above and beyond to support first-gen students.
