First-Gen Zone request for proposals and save the date

In fall 2019, 29,842 (35%) of ASU undergraduate and graduate students were the first in their family to attend college. Thanks to the efforts of many, the number of first-generation students attending ASU has tripled since 2002.

The First-Year Success Center, in partnership with Access ASU, American Indian Student Support Services, Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering, Office of Applied Innovation, Student and Cultural Engagement, TRIO Student Support Services, and Watts College of Public Service and Community Solutions, is excited to announce the second annual First-Gen Zone conference for ASU faculty and staff.

Read the request for proposals. Proposals are due by noon on August 3 and can be submitted online.

The First-Gen Zone conference will be held virtually on Thursday, November 5, 2020. Prepare for a full-day virtual training experience for ASU faculty and staff on empowering and supporting first-generation college students.

ASU is a First-Gen Forward Institution. The 2020 First-Gen Zone conference will help our university to elevate our efforts to support this student population, in alignment with our university’s charter.
