About First in the Pack
First-generation students are students in families where neither parent or guardian has graduated from a four-year college or university. Since its creation, the First in the Pack program has maintained positive outcomes and continuously increased the number of students served. Currently, First in the Pack is funded as part of President Marc Johnson's diversity initiative. First in the Pack’s mission is to develop the necessary agency in first-generation students to meet their academic, social, and career goals.
