A First-Generation (FGEN) college student is defined as when an individual attends college when neither their mother nor father earned a 4-year college degree. The Shepard Academic Resource Center supports programming specifically for UP First-Generation (FGEN) students, and can use the help of faculty and staff. We would love to update our master roster of current UP faculty and staff that were FGEN students themselves. If you were an FGEN student, please take a moment and contact Matt Daily, assistant director, program manager for special populations in the Shepard Center, at email@example.com. We would love to connect with you!
