The Center for First-generation Student Success, an initiative of NASPA – Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education and The Suder Foundation, recognizes Northern Arizona University as a First-Gen Forward Advisory Institution.
Numerous NAU students on the Flagstaff campus identify as first-generation, meaning neither of their parents or guardians earned a bachelor’s degree. First‐generation students are trailblazers, forging new paths for themselves and their families. At Northern Arizona University we are striving to become a campus of excellence for first‐generation students, by providing support systems and resources for our first-generation community
