The First@JCU campaign is an initiative of the Center for Student Diversity and Inclusion and the Office of Academic Advising which aims to engage, enlighten, and connect first-generation undergraduate and graduate students through a campus-wide awareness campaign. We also want to connect first-generation students with current faculty and staff who were the first to graduate in college/graduate school.
