Introducing 1stGenYale!


1stGenYale is an Alumni-led Shared Interest Group founded in 2016 by Yale Alumni to support alumni and students who are the first in their families to attend a college or graduate school and/or who are from low income and/or underserved backgrounds. 1stGenYale alumni and students come from all Yale schools -- undergraduate, graduate and professional. We celebrate diversity of all cultural, ethnic, racial, and socio-economic backgrounds.
