We believe in
Arts & Sciences First-Generation Storytelling Celebration
First-generation students are central to the life and richness of the College of Arts & Sciences community. They are faculty educating the next generation. They are alumni driving change in their communities. They are donors investing in access and equity across the College. And they are current Huskies, charting their own unique paths and making an indelible mark on this University as they do. Join us in learning from and celebrating our first-generation community through stories.
