EKU is widely known as a school of opportunity with extensive resources for first-generation students. As a result of those efforts, the university was recently named a First-gen Forward institution by the Center for First-generation Student Success, an initiative of the National Association of Student Personnel Administrators (NASPA) and The Suder Foundation.

The First-gen Forward designation recognizes institutions of higher education who have demonstrated a commitment to improving experiences and advancing outcomes of first-generation college students. Selected institutions receive professional development, community-building experiences, and a first look at the Center’s research and resources.

“This is a great opportunity for us to learn from and alongside other institutions with a focus similar to ours,” said Gill Hunter, executive director of retention and graduation. “This recognition is consistent with our mission and attributable to our student-first support.”
