Generation1, or GEN1, is a family-centered initiative designed to help first-generation college students and their families successfully navigate higher education here at CTX.
Successful navigation is focused on academic success, engaging in student activities and organizations, creating both social and professional networks, understanding financial literacy, and ultimately graduating and earning that bachelor's degree.The initiative aims to provide support, guidance, and a network for students and families who are a part of the GEN1 community in partnership with the entire Concordia campus.
