First Generation Mentoring Program

Are you first in your family to attend a four-year college?

You're not alone. Almost 1 in 4 undergraduate students at the University of Arkansas are first-gen. Many of our faculty members, including Chancellor Joe Steinmetz, are first-gen as well.

Are you a bit nervous about learning the ins and outs of campus life? We've got your back with the First-Gen Mentoring Program. We'll pair you with a faculty member who will meet with you, answer your questions and offer tips to help you succeed.

Questions? Contact Xochitl Delgado Solorzano at xdelgad@uark.edu or (479) 575-3874.

Students, no need to be in honors to join! 

Register now!

Faculty, thanks for helping first-gen students!
