Gen-1 History

Housed in the Division of Student Affairs, Gen-1 is a groundbreaking University of Cincinnati program that is the nation’s first living-learning community to focus on first-generation college students. Gen-1 serves first-generation, Pell-eligible students’ transition from high school into college, increasing their likelihood of earning a degree.

Since its inception in September of 2008, Gen-1 has provided students with a structured environment in which to live, learn, and work.  In 2010, the Gen-1 Theme House was named among three “exceptional initiatives” in the Midwest to be honored with the first CollegeKeys Compact™ Innovation Awards. Expanding in 2011 to accommodate upperclassmen students, the program continues to grow and celebrated its first graduates in 2012.
