U1.0: First Gen Initiative

U1.0 is a program designed to engage with and support first-generation students at UWM and its branch campuses. We provide assistance to help first-generation students get acclimated to life on campus. U1.0 regularly hosts events, both celebratory and educational, in order to connect with and support first-generation students in their academic, personal, and professional endeavors. At UWM, about 38% of the undergraduate student population is identified as first-generation!

Join our mailing list!

The U1.0 Newsletter is sent out weekly and provides students with information about what is happening at the First-Generation+ Resource Center (FG+RC), campus updates, scholarship opportunities, job and internship opportunities as well as events, activities, and volunteering happening on campus and in the greater Milwaukee area.
