1st Gen AK

1st Gen AK logoFirst Generation:

Neither parent/guardian has earned a baccalaureate degree

We are partnering with Student Support Services for the 1st Gen AK project! This project builds community amongst First Generation Students at UAF and celebrates their unique accomplishments. The project began in Spring 2018 and will continue to grow and develop in the year to come. In Spring 2018 we launched the 1st Gen AK buttons. Staff, Faculty, and Administrators who identify with the above First Generation definition are invited to wear our 1st Gen AK button. These buttons help students to identify other UAF community members who share a similar experience. Wearing a 1st Gen AK button helps to inspire and motivate First Generation students. Join us in celebrating First Generation students!

If you are a First Generation staff, faculty, or administrator please email djcrocker@alaska.edu to pick up a button!
