College is an experience characterized by change and challenges. A wraparound support system can make a difference in whether a college student excels. The First-Generation College Student E3 Program helps ensure success for students who are the first in their families to attend college through a combination of academic support, mentorship, and personalized workshops; our program aims to foster a sense of belonging to empower, elevate, and educate students to achieve their educational goals. First-generation college students are individuals whose parents do not hold a four-year college degree.
E3 Is a leadership developmental program designed to empower, elevate, and educate First-Generation College Students to ensure they have the support necessary to excel academically and graduate college with a degree. The program addresses students’ challenges while fostering a growth mindset by offering various opportunities that extend from community resources, academic support, and professional development workshops to social activities for student success in higher education and beyond.
