A campuswide initiative to recognize and celebrate the supportive, energetic and inclusive first-generation community at UMKC.

Pennant with First Gen Proud written on it

First generation faculty, staff, alumni and current students are invited to join the First Gen Proud registry, as are allies who were not first generation themselves but want to support first-generation students. We also invite all students, faculty and staff to add First Gen Proud to your email signature.
