CAFNR Celebrates First Generation

National First-Generation Celebration Week

Nov. 7-11, 2022

Join Mizzou and CAFNR in a national celebration of first-generation college student success!

The University of Missouri defines a first-generation college student as one whose parents do not have a bachelor’s degree from a college or university. This also includes students (before age 18) who have not lived with or received support from a parent who has received a bachelor’s degree.

At Mizzou, nearly 25 percent of new (first-time college and transfer) students identify as first generation.
