FirstGen Initiative

May 25, 2018

This ongoing initiative supports the success of our first generation college students by creating community through storytelling and social media, offering ways for students to connect with first generation faculty, and developing teaching resources.

The initiative is growing in scope through collaborations with First Year Seminars and CEE’s creation of a First Generation Faculty Learning Community.

Academic Difficulty Webpage and Videos

May 24, 2018

This project was created to provide support and information for students who receive subject to dismissal/disqualification notifications or are placed on academic probation. SD notifications can feel isolating and catastrophic, but all students have an opportunity to create a plan for success, and most go on to graduate from UC Davis. Our videos share students-to-student stories about what happened as they passed through the SD steps.
