A special thanks to everyone who came out to 'explore' with us during our annual first-gen conference. The event was a huge success thanks to the energy and support of students in attendance. Thank you and stay tuned for more First in the Family news and events!
Being the first in your family to pursue post-secondary education (a first-generation student) is something to be proud of! First generation students are building their own legacy, and the First in the Family program at U of T is here to support them in their endeavours.
Join an inclusive academic community and gain access to resources and support through the First in the Family Peer-Mentor Program.
Mentee registration for the 2013-2014 academic year is now open!
- If your parents or guardian(s) did not complete post-secondary
education, you are a first-generation student
- If your parents attended post-secondary education outside of
Canada, you are still eligible for this program
- If your sibling(s) attended post-secondary institutions, but your
parents or guardian(s) did not, you are still considered first
We are thrilled to introduce an amazing team of mentors for the 2013/2014 year!
The St. George First in the Family mentoring program is part of the tri-campus First Generation Retention and Success Project, an initiative funded by the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities. In addition to our partners at Student Affairs and Services at UTM, the Office of Student Affairs at UTSC, and the Colleges on the St. George campus, the program is a collaborative initiative between the Division of Student Life Programs and Services, the Faculty of Arts and Science and Woodsworth College.
