Erica Mosca, who founded the nonprofit Leaders in Training to mentor first-generation and low-income students through high school and college.

Welcome

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.
