Become a Carolina Firsts Advocate

NOTE: This training is currently being redesigned and is on hold. The Center for Student Success tentatively plans to resume offering this training during the Spring of 2023.
As a Carolina Firsts Advocate, you will join a committed group of professionals dedicated to student success, appreciating the experiences of first-generation college students, and supporting students on their path to graduation.

The training will include:
- An overview of the experiences of first-generation college students at Carolina
