The Edinboro University “I’m First” initiative recognizes and supports students who are among the first in their families to earn a bachelor’s degree. First-generation students bring many unique strengths to the campus community, including grit, resilience and determination. We are celebrating the accomplishments of our first-generation students and alumni through the new “I’m First” Alumni Speaker Series! All alumni speakers were first-generation college students at Edinboro University.
Join us in the Learning Commons classroom from 12:00 – 1:00 pm to learn about the journeys of some of our most successful and interesting first-generation alumni. All students, faculty and staff are welcome, and lunch is included for free.
October 4: Dr. Lorraine Justice ’77: Internationally-recognized designer, author, speaker, consultant and professor emeritus at RIT will speak about using the power of design thinking to propel you from college to career.
