Faculty & Staff Profiles

The goal of the I AM FIRST campaign is to encourage retention and engagement in undergraduate research.

One Stop Services found that campuses tend to lose the most first-generation students during their second year, not their first, as previously believed. Through sharing first-generation faculty & staff stories and encouraging first-generation students to engage in research, we hope to increase the graduation rate of first-generation students here at CPP.
