Our Equity Statement 

First Generation Initiatives is an office dedicated to first-generation college students, a marginalized student population. We acknowledge the intersecting identities that go along with being a first-gen student, such as immigration status, race, socio-economic status, gender, sexual orientation, and more. To best serve our student population, we operate from an equity, access, and inclusion framework. So, what does this mean for our team? It means that we provide programming that encompasses all elements of being first-gen, therefore creating a safer, more inclusive space for our students. We also take the time to educate ourselves on systems of oppression, implicit bias, microaggressions, hidden curriculum, imposter syndrome, and unique identities to better serve our students. No matter your identity, exposure, or understanding of these topics, we will be happy to have you join our team. However, we do ask that you be open to learning and growing with us.
