The University of Cincinnati Gen-1/1MPACT House Program incorporates a housing component designed to provide program residents with a safe, orderly, and highly structured environment in which to live, learn, and work.
The Gen-1 Theme House opened in the fall of 2008 to provide a 24/7 structured living and learning environment for a student population that is most at risk for dropping out of college. 1MPACT House opened in the fall of 2018 and is a residence hall living/learning center created for first-generation, Pell-eligible, or underrepresented minority students. 1MPACT House supports students as they adjust to the new-found freedom AND new responsibilities of college by providing them with the opportunity to live and learn with a ready-made group of peers, as well as support to foster their success.
The primary objective of the Gen-1/1MPACT House Program is to provide first-generation, Pell-eligible, or underrepresented minority students with the academic support needed to make a successful transition from high school to college and to complete a college degree within six years or less. The 1MPACT House Program supports selected students through their first year. The Gen-1 Program continues to provide academic assistance and support through graduation to Gen-1 students who remain enrolled in UC following successful completion of the Gen-1 freshman year residential experience.
