F1RST-Gen Friday: Meghann Kuhlmann, MLIS

Focus on first-gen: This week we highlight Meghann Kuhlmann, Master of Library and Information Science, research and instructional services librarian, assistant professor, Wichita State University Libraries:

  • Why does advocating for first-gen matter?
    As a first-gen student I was often afraid to ask questions when I thought everyone else already knew the answer. I’m inspired to create an environment where first-gen students feel comfortable and supported enough to know their questions are important and that people on campus are genuinely happy to help them.
  • Sign up to join the First-Gen Affinity Shockers —This group is designed to foster a community of first-generation professionals, build a group that offers professional development and networking opportunities. It’s also meant to foster an environment where common experiences can be shared, while addressing the needs of first-gen professionals at Wichita State University.
