Washington State University's First-Generation College Celebration
November 8


2020 First-Generation College Celebration

For the past four years, institutions from across the nation have celebrated first-generation students, faculty, and staff on November 8 to highlight the important contributions made within the campus communities. At many institutions, November 8 events have grown to week-long, or even month-long celebrations. Washington State University is joining the national effort to celebrate the accomplishments and legacy of first-gen individuals across the WSU-System. Specially, Washington State University would like to showcase ways in which first gen individuals have achieved academic success and how others have supported the academic achievement of first-gen students. Through these events, we want to celebrate and also provide best practices for students, faculty, and staff to foster academic achievement for first-gen individuals.

Please visit our event page for more details on Washington State University's plans.
