Welcome to the First Gen Community!

University Career Services acknowledges the unique experiences of first-generation college students. First-generation students are those whose parent or guardian did not earn a four year degree and are the first in their family to attend a four-year university. In this community page, you can find resources, events, programs and other information that can help you navigate and achieve success throughout your professional journey at UNL. Connect early and often with your First-Gen Career Advisor for more information regarding career development and exploration.
