First-Generation College Students
Share |

 

By definition a First-Generation College Student is one whose parents have not received a college degree from a 2-year or 4-year institute. This category can then be separated into other identifiers which could include various academic and socio-economic factors.

Mission Statement The mission of the First-Generation College Student Network is to provide an opportunity for members to increase awareness about the experiences of first-generation college students and to share knowledge and best practices for first-generation college student success.

 

Educational Session Guidelines/Learning Outcomes Participants will be able to:

  • Identify unique challenges faced by first-generation college students
  • Understand how the unique characteristics and backgrounds of first-generation college students impact their orientation, transition, and retention
  • Apply knowledge of research and best practices to different institutional contexts
  • Connect with colleagues from other institutions to disseminate ideas, discuss relevant topics, share resources, and/or work to find solutions in support of first-generation college student success
