Focusing on a theme of first generation college students, Diversity Conference Day May 14 features keynote speaker Bill Lockyer '69, state treasurer and a past CSUEB Distinguished Alumnus of the Year, plus panel discussion and presentations including community and university leaders and students. The day's events, held in the new University Union multipurpose room, begin at 11:30 a.m. and conclude with a 6 p.m. showing of the documentary film "First Generation."
“Most people stereotype first generation college students most as foreign born, children of immigrants. Anyone of any background may be a first generation college student. Our goal is to create awareness and create a platform to discuss the challenges and day to day struggles of these students” said the event organizer, Aisha Wahab, graduate assistant at the ASI Diversity Center
