Leadership Opportunities

Are you passionate about being the first in your family to attend college, and want to help others?  There are plenty of ways that you can connect within our FGEN community here on the Bluff!

  • Become a FGEN Student Ambassador.  Each year, the SARC seeks to recruit and hire First Generation (FGEN) Student Ambassadors to work with the Assistant Director to lead and coordinate targeted programming opportunities for FGEN students.  In addition, this position offers a peer mentorship component to freshmen students, creating a new opportunity for FGEN freshmen to connect to FGEN upper class students. More information can be seen here for the complete position description.
