The F1RST Generation Coordinating Council (FGCC) was started in August of 2018 under the direction of the Assistant Vice President of Academic Affairs, Kaye Monk-Morgan. The council serves advocates who promote awareness and mentorship in order to further support first-generation Shockers at Wichita State University.
The Council’s work is trifold and includes
- Creating awareness related to the needs and success of this special population.
- Encouraging involvement and support of faculty and staff.
- Reviewing data and outcomes in order to make recommendations for systemic change that leads to better experiences and outcomes for students.
