Tarleton First-Generation Initiatives is a community of students, faculty, and staff who share a common experience of being the first in their family to attend and graduate from a four-year university. We provide invaluable support to help students be successful by connecting them to campus resources, networking opportunities and by fostering a community of first-generation students, faculty, and staff.
