We have heard time and time again from successful first generation college professionals that one of the most significant factors in navigating through their degree programs was having good mentorship. This is particularly salient in graduate/professional school, where students are socialized in the implicit culture of their professions.
We are looking for UCSF faculty and staff who understand the value of mentorship in academic and professional development and are interested in mentoring our First Generation college students. The "First Gen Mentorship Program" was designed to connect faculty and staff to UCSF First Gen students. Please join us by simply completing our First Gen Mentorship Program form today!
