First-generation Faculty and Staff Needed

First-generation faculty and staff members interested in mentoring first-generation students are needed for a new program at UT. The Student Success Center, in collaboration with the Office of Multicultural Student Life, will oversee the First-Generation Mentoring Program for incoming Promise scholarship students. The project needs fifteen faculty or professional staff members who were also first-generation college students and are willing to serve as mentors for fifteen first-generation, first-year students during the 2013–2014 academic year.
