It is a week observed nationally across many universities dedicated to celebrating first-gen pride and to raise awareness and visibility for first gen, low-income students. “Reclaiming our Identity" was GEN Week's theme this year. "The context for this is that we (FGLI students) are reclaiming our identity from administrators and institutions, or the compartmentalization of the identity," said Miller.
