Wellesley College First Generation Network

The goals of Wellesley College’s First Generation Network are:

  • To connect First Gen Students to one another (and by so doing build a network of peer resources);
  • To connect First Gen Students to Faculty and Staff (and by so doing build a network of mentors and mentees);
  • To extend the network into First Gen Wellesley Alumni (and to seek their assistance in addressing the concerns of employment and further education after Wellesley);
  • To connect First Gen Student experiences to the diversity/inclusion goals of the college and division (Issues of class, ethnicity, gender, and citizenship not only intersect with but also provide integrative focus for the curricular and co-curricular aspects of a Wellesley College education).
