The Next Gen Committee cordially invites you to join us on
Tuesday, March 15th at 7:30pm ET for our virtual Next Gen Dinner in partnership with the Harvard Graduate Commons Program.
The Next-Gen Dinner Series, brings together First-generation & FGLI (First-generation, low-income) undergrads, graduate students, faculty and university staff from across all of Harvard’s schools to learn from one another about topics specific to the 1G (First-Gen) experience at Harvard.
For this meeting, we'll enjoy dinner and prepare for the final weeks of the semester (and beyond). We will explore what it means to be successful and avoid burnout here at Harvard with Professor Vinny Manoharan (SEAS).
We'll also have time for you to talk with one another and discuss ways you can "reset" during the spring recess and find (or create) occasions to feel your best . Whether you're a first-year college student or nearing the end of your graduate program, this Next Gen session will offer opportunities for you to connect with peers, mentors, and find support for what you need to be well at this stage of your Harvard experience.
Please note, this event centers the experiences of the Next Gen community. The Harvard University Next Gen community is defined as
First-generation college students (first in your family to earn a four-year degree)
First-generation graduate students (first in your family to earn an advanced degree)
First-generation international students (first your family to earn a degree in the U.S.)
Students from lower income or underresourced communities
Students from historically underrepresented communities
Students who are undocumented, DACAmented, TPS or from mixed-status households
Space is limited | Dinner available for pick up (in Cambridge, MA)
We look forward to seeing you soon!
