Achieving the Dream

On November 8, led by the Center for First-generation Student Success, colleges and universities participate in the National First-Generation College Celebration. The annual celebration aims to advance an asset-based national narrative about first-generation student experiences and outcomes. The event also highlights the systemic barriers that many first-generation learners face when navigating the higher education system, encouraging colleges and universities to better support this demographic.
