First Generation Low Income Partnership (FLIP) has invited staff who identify as first-generation to participate in Gen Day by purchasing a t-shirt for $8.00 and participate in their social media campaign. The campaign will consist of pictures taken in spaces across campus that are of significance to the first-gen community, such as: the Lending Library, the CU Food Bank, FIF, OMA, CPS, etc. Due to limited funds, t-shirts are on a first come - first serve basis for the first (50) staff members to purchase via registration.
