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!
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.
November 1: Fred Hodges ’11, M’14
Fred is the director for the Office of Multicultural Affairs at Robert Morris University and will speak about how to thrive as a college student and young professional from a first-generation perspective.
