Office of Diversity & Inclusion


We invite all first generation college faculty and staff to participate in our Chico State first Generation Collegiate and Proud Network.

Note: You are a first generation college student if neither of your parents has completed a four-year university degree.

If you are interested in participating, you will be provided with a placard to display in your office, as well as resource materials. The placard will allow our first generation college students to identify faculty and staff who have experienced similar challenges, as well as successes, as they are pursuing their college degree.

"During the 2014–15 academic year first generation college students comprised 7,793 or 48.5% of all CSU, Chico students and 1,587 or 53.9% of incoming freshmen."
