6th Annual First Generation College Student Summit

Apr. 21, 2018 9:00 am – 6:00 pm
Gamble Auditorium

The First Generation Student Summit, under the Class Action Organization, serves as a site for the ‘meeting of the minds.’ First gen students and their allies come together to identify problems, discuss grassroots solutions and share what’s working on other campuses. First and foremost, we want to find solutions identified by students who can work with their staff, administrator and faculty allies. Class Action offers spaces where students can both identify these problems and build grassroots solutions to them.

We are proud to announce that the 2018 First Generation College Student Summit will be hosted at Mount Holyoke College, supported by the Division of Student Life and the First Gen Work Group

For more information about the summit, visit the Class Action website or contact Division of Student Life at 413-538-2550.
