ODU F1RST Faculty

The phrase "first-generation college students" is used to describe students whose parents or grandparents did not earn a college degree. Our conversations indicate that many of our faculty and faculty administrators were first-generation college students themselves.

The main goal of the 'F1RST Faculty' opportunity is to encourage faculty-student interaction outside of the classroom through relationships that help to improve sense of belonging for both first-gen faculty and first-gen students.
