“It’s not that people haven’t been inclusive. It’s just… a
feeling I have in myself. You feel like an imposter. Like,
especially when you go back into your family life.”
In Fall 2018, the American Library Association awarded Dr.
Anthony Bernier a Diversity Research Grant (the committee’s top
pick from among 30 proposals) to study the experience of the
iSchool’s First Generation (FG) students. The project defined FG
students as people coming from family backgrounds in which
neither parent earned a professional degree.
