Description

The University of Washington proudly supports the experience of first-generation students on all three campuses. UW Bothell, Seattle and Tacoma campuses are coming together to join colleges and universities from across the nation to participate in the National First-Generation College Celebration on November 8! We invite all members of our community to celebrate the success and presence of students, faculty and staff who are the first in their families to attend college.

Stop by our UW School of Social Work #CelebrateFirstGen table on Friday, November 8th between 2:00-3:30 p.m. at the UW School of Social Work building on the Seattle campus; our table will be setup in the "Gallery" (first floor of the building, between the ground floor and second floor). Grab free snacks and social work swag, and take a button to promote and celebrate awareness for what it means to #BeTheFirst!  We invite you to take photos with us and share your quotes and encouragement to other first generation students, via our UW School of Social Work Instagram page.

The UW School of Social Work is a proud home to many #UWFirstGen scholars, #UWFirstGenGrads, and passionate changemakers who value social justice, promote equity, and ignite social change. Every day #UWFirstGen students, faculty and staff make impactful contributions to our university community. We are proud to join colleges and universities across the country to recognize the National First-Generation College Celebration on November 8.
