Our Mission


First Generation University understands that earning a formal collegiate education does not end with the admissions process, and seeks to empower first generation college students, and their families, with information that will help first generation students complete a bachelor’s degree. While academic preparation is a large part of the battle, engaging a new environment without knowledge of how the systems of higher education operate may leave even the most exceptional first generation college student in the dark. First Generation University seeks to demystify the various layers of higher education, and shed light on the crystal stair to success.

  1. Hello,

    I am a first generation college student & I am going to graduate in the spring from UT Austin. I just found out about this website through Twitter & I would love to get involved in any way I could. I have served as a mentor for freshmen in a program I belong to on campus each of the last three years. I’d be glad to provide any other information that you would need from me.

  2. We at Course Hunter applaud the work of First Generation University and would like to know if there is anything we can do to help? Our website is very simple: we are a directory of ALL online courses, programs and certificates. Though our mission is simple, our reach is wide and broad. Please let us know how we can help your organization and, more importantly, your audience. (Also, please launch a Facebook site so we can be the first to “like” it!) Eric
