I AM FIRST Week of Celebration

November 7-11, 2022


Students receiving awards at the I AM First Celebration

Nov. 7-11 is I AM FIRST Week at Kent State! Throughout the week, we will have a number of programs celebrating students who will be the first in their family to earn a bachelor's degree. In addition to recognizing first-generation students, we will celebrate staff, faculty, and advocates for their accomplishments and support of the First-gen student journey. For the I AM FIRST award's ceremony, participants will have the opportunity to sign the I AM FIRST promise banner and hear First-generation student testimonials. Dr. Michael Daniels, director of the E. Timothy Moore Student Multicultural Center, will serve as the keynote speaker.
