Celebrate First Generation College Students at Northeastern!
First Gen Week centers first-generation students, staff, and faculty, and the strengths and perspectives they bring to our campus! All events this year will be virtual.
|We are excited to offer a full week of virtual programming from Sunday, November 8, 2020, through Thursday, November 13, 2020. Over 20 offices and programs across Northeastern will offer panel discussions, workshops, and celebratory events to amplify the proud voices and experiences of first-generation college students at the university. The week will culminate with a keynote address by Dr. Anthony Abraham Jack, author of The Privileged Poor, followed by an awards ceremony to recognize the accomplishments of first generation college students at Northeastern.
Below, you will find additional details and links about the celebration. Please visit this site often as we will continue to update these pages with new information in the weeks leading up to the event.
We look forward to seeing you at First Gen Week!
