First2 Network supports the creation of First2 Campus Clubs, whose purpose is to support the success of first generation and other under-represented students in STEM and to serve as the home for our First2 Ambassador Program. Recommendations for campus club activities include check-ins, guest speakers, First2 ambassador training and assignments, resume-building, professional development, and more.
If First2 Campus Clubs need additional financial support past campus support (if that exists) and other club income, First2 Campus Clubs can apply directly to First2 augment their club budget. Club meetings can plan on a budget of $10 per student, per meeting and can apply for up to $25/student for fun social activity each semester.
Campus Clubs are the campus homes to support First2 activities, change ideas, students, faculty and staff. The First2 Network is always working to better support first-generation and other underrepresented students in STEM, and to change the systems, practices, and policies to better support these students’ success.
Clubs meet regularly, and include first-gen and other underrepresented students who are majoring in STEM, student allies, other allies, club sponsors, and supporting faculty and staff.
Currently, clubs are meeting at WVU, Fairmont, WVSU, and Marshall. To connect with a current club or start a club on your own campus, contact us.
