Call for university partners to co-sponsor third annual First-generation Student Graduation Reception
The Office of First-generation Students will host the third annual First-generation Student Graduation reception for graduates and their families on Friday, May 15. Through strong partnerships and collaborations across campus, we celebrated graduating first-generation students and their families during the past two years. Students will receive a green cord to wear to commencement ceremonies that symbolize first-generation students' resilience.
We invite you to consider serving on the planning committee to coordinate and implement the graduation reception. The committee will meet several times during the spring 2020 semester, starting in early February and leading up to the event. Partners are asked to consider making financial and/or in-kind contributions toward the event. Contributing partners will be acknowledged at the graduation reception.
If your office, unit or college is interested in co-sponsoring and collaborating in this event, please fill out the Qualtrics survey by Friday, Jan. 31.
