First to go to college is an honor held by many UNLV students, faculty, staff, and leaders at UNLV. We celebrate our first-generation family as they are an important part of the very fabric that is UNLV!
First-generation faculty and students face many of the same challenges including being unfamiliar with the new environment, difficulty accessing resources, and making networking connections for collaborative opportunities. The Intersection helps new faculty and students acclimate to our campus.
All UNLV first-generation students, faculty, and staff are invited to show your first-gen pride through social media properties. The UNLV community at-large is also invited to share our support and recognize the experiences of our first-generation classmates and colleagues.
