The First Generation Task Force at Bentley started during the Summer 2018 with the hope of collaborating our efforts in support of the work we are already doing with our first-generation students. During Orientation in August, the first First-Generation Student Social was held, inviting all students who identify as first-generation to meet each other, meet first-generation faculty/staff, and hear about the most common resources they may need in their first semester at Bentley. If you would like to hear more about this task force, serve as a resource for first-generation students, and are first-generation yourself - please fill out this quick form. Faculty and Staff who participate in this rolodex of first-generation resources will receive a postcard/sticker for their office door/computer/desk to be proudly displayed.
The term first generation college student means:
(A) an individual both of whose parents did not complete a baccalaureate degree; or
(B) in the case of any individual who regularly resided with and received support from only one parent, an individual whose only such parent did not complete a baccalaureate degree.
If you have any questions, please contact Jackie Masloff in the Computer Information Systems Department, Chair, First-Generation Task Force.
