WVU's "Ambassadors For Change" would like to invite you to a virtual event on first-generation collegiate issues. The goal of the Ambassadors for Change class is to further the education of Rural First-Gen students, and to gain a better understanding of the challenges they face in college. The class has received a WVU Provost sponsored Transform This! Grant, and will host a Virtual Conversation. The class invites everyone to join this Virtual Conversation on April 13th, from 6-7:30 pm on "Zoom". Links can be found here:

The schedule is an hour of small presentations and a Q/A panel. Students from the class will give a small introduction and presentation, and Provost Reed plans to speak. The class expects to expand the knowledge of first- gen students and give them a voice that can be heard by everyone.
