Harvard Club of Boston
374 Commonwealth Avenue
Boston, MA 02215
Join First Generation Harvard Alumni, the Harvard Club of Boston, and the Harvard Alumni Association for a special program on the first generation student experience and issues of accessibility in higher education.
Being the first person in your family to attend college is a milestone for any student—even more so when that college is Harvard. During this interactive panel discussion, current First-Generation student Jasmine Fernandez COL '16, Dean of Admissions and First-Generation alumnus Bill Fitzsimmons AB '67, and Dr. Anya Bernstein Basset PhD '97, whose research focuses on First Generation experiences at elite universities, will share their perspectives. The conversation will be moderated by First Generation Harvard Alumni President Kevin Jennings AB '85. A light dessert reception will follow the program.
