First Generation Mentorship Program

The First-Generation Mentorship Program (FGMP) was put together by the Residential Life Department to assist First-Generation college students living on campus navigate their college experience while creating a safe space for students to express themselves, receive assistance to overcome their unique challenges and prepare them for a brighter future.

Through this program, residents will be able to:

  • Connect with at least 3 campus offices/resources, faculty, students, or staff that also identify as first-generation.
  • Identify successful strategies that contribute to their academic and personal success during their time at UC Riverside.
  • Express their identity, perspective, and develop critical thinking skills to challenge societal norms within and outside the University setting.

Our mission for FGMP is to help First-Generation students build relationships amongst one another, faculty, and staff through mentorship while providing opportunities for personal, professional, and academic advancement.
