Who We Serve

First-generation college students: students whose parents did not complete a 4-year (Bachelor’s) degree within the United States. We encourage our students to self-identify as first-gen and don’t use a specific definition.

Low-income college students: students who qualify for the Pell Grant or other forms of government assistance. We encourage our students to self-identify as low-income and don’t have any type of income threshold.

Faculty, staff and administrators: professionals and university officials working to support first-generation and low-income college students across the country.
