Strengthening our Safety Net for Students: Open Door event

Many University of Pittsburgh students face significant financial obstacles to getting their basic needs—food, shelter, healthcare--met. Support is available, but gaining access to it can be challenging. In this interactive session, students, faculty, staff, and alumni who were first-generation college students will discuss the challenges they faced and how their socio-economic status limited their ability to fully participate in campus life. Then, based on the issues identified, attendees will discuss ways to both identify and promote existing services, and create new resources to help fill the gaps.
