The Center for First-Generation Students at Moravian University
The Center for First-Generation Students at Moravian University provides a supportive and welcoming community for first-generation college students and their family members.
Drawing on national best practices and working collaboratively with faculty, staff, and offices from across the campus, we aspire to guide students toward their educational and career goals in a manner that prepares them for successful careers and meaningful lives. We recognize and celebrate first-generation student identity as an asset. First Hounds Proud!
Am I a First-Generation College Student?
First-generation college students are the first in their immediate family to attend a college or university and earn a 4-year degree. Parents or guardians may have some college experience or an associate's degree, but not a bachelor's degree. If you are or think you might be a first-generation college student, fill out our form or email email@example.com to join our mailing list and get connected with resources at Moravian University.
How We Can Help
First Hounds will:
- provide mentoring and guidance to first-generation students;
- improve first-generation student outcomes;
- help first-generation students to embrace this aspect of their identity and form a community of first-gens within our campus and
- empower first-generation students to take on leadership roles and to identify needs for their community.
