First Generation Staff and Faculty

You must be logged onto your UNCA Gmail account to access this list.

These UNCA staff and faculty were First Generation students as undergraduates. This list was created to show that you are not alone in your experience as a First Generation student and there are staff and faculty who want to support you in your journey. Everyone on this list has provided their contact information in the hopes that students may reach out when they are in need of help or just an ear to listen. Please read through some of the personal stories and advice that have been provided and don’t hesitate to reach out to anyone on this list.

We hope you will get to know these faculty and staff members, take inspiration from them, and, if you are a First Generation college student, let them serve as a reminder that you can do this.
