Brown University is opening a center for its students who are the first in their families to attend college.
The Ivy League school is set to open a First-Generation College Student Center in its sciences library this summer.
Brown recently announced the center will have a $30,000 annual budget. The center will have office and meeting space, a lounge and shared classroom and event space.
Brown says it wants to have a dedicated home for resources to help these students navigate college life.
Students have pushed for more activities, programs and resources to support first-generation students. Brown has offered more in recent years.
The college says those efforts led to an expansion of its First-Generation College Student Initiative.
First-generation students comprise about 16 percent of Brown's undergraduate student body.
