Our Vision & Mission

The mission of First-Generation Student Advising is to support first-generation students at the University of Kentucky from recruitment to graduation through research-based programs, resources, best practices and campus-wide advocacy about the needs of students who are the first in their families to go to college.

As a member of the Student Transitions and Family Programs, we accomplish this mission by advocating for first-generation students within their colleges and collaborating with the Division of Student and Academic Life, Enrollment Management, International Center and Institutional Diversity.
