First Gen - Law School

Campus Resources for Students

The first-generation descriptor directly addresses students’ family background in the context of education. The advantages associated with having parental guidance informed by shared higher educational experiences commonly manifest in the forms of empathy, effective university navigation, and higher levels of college self-efficacy. The goal of this list is to provide all students with humanized resources that enable students to navigate the university landscape, with the aim that students who are unable to ask for parental guidance on college-specific issues have a team of people a click or two away.
