The First Generation Professionals Program provides an array of services and support to students who are the first in their families to earn a college degree, as well as students who are from lower-income backgrounds. The scope of FGP programming encompasses peer and alumni mentorship; seminars and workshops, from mastering professional etiquette to developing a growth mindset, among other topics; advisement by first-generation faculty members; and networking opportunities with law practitioners.
