Converging Identities: First Gen with a Disability - First Gen Week

Hosted by the Disability Resource Center, this session will be an open discussion on multiple identities with focus on first generation and disabilities.

All first generation events are open to everyone unless otherwise indicated. 

UCR defines first generation as "a student, faculty, or staff member with neither parent or guardian having graduated with a 4-year degree or higher, in the United States." As of Fall 2018, UCR enrolled 57% first generation (first gen) undergraduate students versus the national average of 34%. Approximately 63% of students who entered in the fall of 2018 are first-generation students, an increase over recent years. A large percentage of faculty, staff, and administrators at UCR are also first generation and are proud to support our first generation community here at UCR.
