First Generation College Student Celebration | University of Portland

First Generation College Student Celebration

For the past five years the University of Portland, along with institutions across the nation, have celebrated National First Generation Day. Each year, November 8th is a day of celebration for all as a means to highlight UP first-generation students, faculty, and staff. Our goal is to showcase the important contributions all first generation community members have made here on the Bluff! UP and FGEN has expanded our efforts, and now includes engagement opportunity for the entire UP community throughout the week.
