All divisions, schools, offices, and programs across IUPUI are invited to participate in the day in whatever way they can. You might hold an event, send a special note to your first-generation students, highlight a student or two on social media, or even just set up a table somewhere on campus to hand out swag. We’ve compiled a list to get you thinking. Once you’ve decided how you’ll participate, register your participation below so that we can help highlight it to campus as the celebration nears!
Want to be even more involved? Learn about the First-Generation Day committee at IUPUI and reach out to be part of the planning.
The Main Event
In addition to the office and program events around campus, the campus will be celebrating first-gen in the Campus Center TV Lounge from 11 until 2. We’ll have food and fun activities, including de-stress dogs, a photo booth, decorate-your-mortarboard, a popcorn bar, swag, and more! Everyone is welcome to attend—and don’t forget to promote the event to your students along with your own!
