F1RST-Gen Friday: Gina Crabtree

Focus on first-gen: This week we highlight Gina Crabtree, university registrar and director of Enrollment Services.

  • How has your first-gen experience inspired you?
    While I remember wishing my parents had more understanding of the issues I faced when selecting and attending college, only hindsight helped me to fully recognize the difficulties and disadvantages of my first-gen experience. You don’t know what you don’t know. I’m proud to be part of a university community that is working to address the barriers many first-gen students face!
  • Sign up to join the First-Gen Affinity Shockers (FGAS)—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.
