About The Center

The Routh First-Generation Center began in 2019 as an outgrowth of Provost Fierke's Student Success Initiative, a campus-wide project to improve student success at Texas A&M University. The charge given to the Office for Student Success was to hire a group of professionals dedicate to improving the quality of the student experience for first-generation students through implementation of dedicated first-generation programs, coordination of campus-wide first-gen and Regents' Scholars programs, and the advocacy for professional development and education on the needs of first-generation students at Texas A&M.

Following a generous gift from Stephanie Duprie Routh ’93 and Todd Routh ’86 in the spring of 2020, the center was renamed in their honor (Endowment News Release). Today, the staff of the Routh First-Generation Center work tirelessly to serve our first-generation students and eagerly look forward to the new opportunities available from this gift.
