First Gen Alumni Network

UCLA’s First Gen Network serves alumni from all backgrounds, ages and ethnicities who are the first in their family to attend and graduate from college and includes students and siblings for which neither parent has received a four-year degree in the United States. Providing social and professional engagement, community outreach and mentorship opportunities through events, networking and community service, the First Gen Alumni Network will create sustainable connections and support for all members of the community.

The First Gen alumni network endeavors to:

  • Promote awareness and education
  • Welcome, congratulate, advise and mentor
  • Provide support through scholarships
  • Advocate on behalf of first generation students and graduates
  • Foster connections with and among alumni
  • Represent UCLA in the community
