Are you the first in your family to go to college? That's something to celebrate! Join us for events designed especially for you and discover resources to support your experience here at IUPUI. You're not alone. Many of our faculty and staff were also the first in their families to attend college.
IUPUI cares about the experiences of first-generation students and works to be a welcoming and supportive environment for students who are the first in their families to attend college. While our weeklong celebration is important, we're also committed to the other 51 weeks in the year and all of the experiences that students have.
We have held First-Generation Celebrations since November 2018 and expanded to include other ways to engage our first-generation students, faculty, and staff year-round. No matter your role at IUPUI, we have a way for you to get involved.
