What We Do


Gen-1 Programming is purposefully grounded in four pillars: Live, Learn, Give, and Earn, through which Gen-1 students engage in opportunities that foster success and enrich their university experience.

Gen-1 students also complete the following courses:
- PD 1100: Success Strategies I (1st year, fall)
- PD 2100: Service & Success II (1st year, spring)
- PD 2070: Purpose & Profesionalism (2nd year, fall)

These courses enhance students' transition to college and prepare them for employment opportunities including academic internships, co-op, and study abroad experiences.

Learn Expand


Students receive academic support and enroll in Gen-1 classes to achieve academic success and graduate in a timely manner.   Gen-1 students access tutoring/academic coaching through the Learning Assistance Center and explore Study Abroad opportunities.

Earn Expand


Students engage in internships, co-op, job shadowing, and other opportunities that result in career exploration, stronger resumes, and marketable and meaningful employment experience.
