First-Generation Graduate Student Symposium (Online)

February 2 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Join the Boston University Newbury Center, Duke University First-Generation Graduate Student Network, and The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Carolina Grad Student F1RSTS, along with our Cooperating Sponsor, the Center for First-generation Student Success, for our 7th annual symposium for graduate and professional students on February 2, 2024 via Zoom. This national symposium is open to any student who identifies as a current first-generation graduate or professional student and is studying any discipline.  We define a first-generation graduate/professional student as someone whose parents/guardians/caregivers have not completed an advanced degree, e.g. master’s, doctoral, or professional degree (like a JD or MD). 

We are excited to welcome our keynote speaker, Angela E. Batista, a proud first-generation student, learner, educator, speaker, facilitator, coach and Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging (DEIB) consultant. We will also have opportunities for you to network with other first-generation graduate/professional students at institutions across the country, workshop sessions, and more! All times listed below are EST.

*This Symposium is only for current first-generation graduate and professional students.  While we appreciate the support of administrators, faculty, and staff, we would like to reserve the “seats” for students in this limited-capacity virtual event.  Thank you in advance for your understanding!
