UConn Nation is proud to be home to thousands of first-generation college students, faculty, and staff. First generation students come from families where neither a parent nor guardian has a four-year degree or higher from a college or university. Many students whose parents have degrees from outside of the US also identify as First Gen.
UConn is dedicated to supporting and serving anyone who identifies as First Generation. First-Gen Huskies- including First Gen faculty and staff- are a fundamental part of our campus and a strong, proud part of the Husky pack.
