Welcome to the First Generation Community Page!
The CCPD supports students and alumni as they navigate their career and professional development – we offer one-on-one advising, resume and cover letter reviews, workshops, networking opportunities, career fairs and more. Through our services, we are committed to serving and supporting students and alumni of all identities – in collaboration with our RWU community partners, we have designed the Identity/Affinity Communities to support, celebrate, and recognize students’ unique diversity and have curated spaces with helpful tools, resources and staff. You may identify with multiple communities, so we encourage you to explore the groups to find information that might be useful to you. The resources featured in these communities are not exhaustive, so feel free to contact us with any additional questions, resources, or information you think might be useful.

Through the CCPD you can attend career events, meet with a career advisor, and get all the resources and support you need to embark on your career journey!
Understand your Financial Aid
Financial Aid can be a confusing process to navigate at any stage in your college career. RWU’s Financial Aid office can help you understand your unique financial aid and financing options and provide resources to support your financial well-being while at Roger Williams.
The RWU Counseling Center supports students by providing an affirming, confidential, equitable, and safe environment encouraging self-exploration, reflection, and resiliency. Current students can make an appointment and find resources for navigating college life.
