First-Generation Committee members see selves in students


Members of the IUPUI First-Generation Committee are passionate about supporting students who are the first in their families to go to college.

“College can be a very tough time for someone who may have had no guidance or understanding of what it looks like,” Ernest Evans said. “Every interaction we have with those students is very important. It could be the determining factor of them staying and being successful at this institution or them leaving.”
