Faculty and Staff Resources

Welcome Faculty and Staff. Thank you for visiting our First Gen website. Your support is key to the success of all students and especially students who are first in their family to go to college! The goal of this webpage is to provide resources to assist you in your work with first generation students here at the University of Washington Bothell.

If you find through your interactions and conversations with a student that they are a first gen student, you will come to recognize that they have unique experiences, especially as they transition to the university environment. It is a wonderful source of pride for these students to be first in their family to pursue a bachelor's or graduate degree.
