What we aim to do with the first gen. program at UOW is to bring together first in family staff, students and their families to establish a great new network based on encouragement, recognition and backing. So as often as we can, we will be putting on First Gen events. In development for 2020 we also have a guide-on-the-side resource, mentoring opportunities, and tailored communication including current student stories and staff development workshops. Stay tuned.
