Branstetter Part of New Group for First Generation Graduate Students
Over the spring and summer of 2021, graduate student Olivia Branstetter worked with others at the Graduate School to create an new student group for first-generation graduate students. The Graduate School's new initiative for first-generation students in graduate programs is meant to help these students face issues such as impostor syndrome and to help them establish connections with one another. First-Gen Connect will also develop programming for first generation college students in graduate programs. First-generation graduate students can also join a listserv to help them make connections with others.
