FG Network Advocate

Faculty/Staff Advocates are available through open office hours each month. We encourage all of our first-gen students to get in touch with these folks and to take advantage of their experience and wisdom. Particularly for fall 2020 in a largely virtual environment, we encourage you to email them in advance to let them know you plan to come by. Their email addresses are listed below.
