Nearly thirty percent of Indiana University students are first-generation, yet a resource center has not been devoted to first-generation students (First-Generation, n.d.). First-generation students are defined, in our study, as any individual whose parents have yet to obtain a credential degree from a 4-year institution (Ives & Castillo, 2020). According to the National Center for Education Statistics, first-generation students comprise one-third of undergraduates in a bachelor's degree program in 2016 (Nam, 2023). This study aims to conduct a qualitative survey with the goal of gathering input from Indiana University first-generation students regarding the creation of the First-Generation Student Resource Center.
