As part of First-Gen Week (Nov. 8th – Nov. 13th), Texas Tech faculty and staff, and educators from across the Lubbock community, are invited to participate in the First-Gen Champions Institute.
The First-Gen Champions Institute seeks to bring together individuals that are committed to fostering a space for learning and understanding as it relates to college access, completion, and success for first-generation students. The Institute will allow first-gen champions to share in a discussion on what it truly means to champion First-Gen success and how to put those ideas into practice.
