What We Do

Being a first generation college student at UCSF is more than coming from a background where one's parents or guardians did not graduate from college. It is about venturing into the world of graduate and professional school to actualize one's potential and contribute to one's family, community, profession and society.

First Generation Support Services offers mentoring programs, workshops, socials and other community-building events, as well as individual appointments. We also support FG2C, a student organization. Our services are designed to address your needs as a first generation college student.

As part of UCSF’s mission to educate and train a diverse student body, we aim to foster a campus environment in which the academic promise of our first gen students and the collective vision for equal educational opportunity regardless of socioeconomic class can be fully realized.

Our efforts focus primarily on
