Due to the uncertainty related to COVID-19 and how it might impact any large gatherings of individuals, we have made the difficult decision to delay our conference until next year.
We appreciate your steadfast support and commitment to first-generation students, and we hope you understand the decision. We will be in touch with you again as we look forward to planning next year’s Celebrating First-Generation Students: From Convocation to Graduation conference. In the meantime, please feel free to reach out to us if we may be of assistance in helping you to support first-generation students.
