First Generation College Support
Wednesday, October 18, 2017 | 2:00 pm ET
Presented by Elizabeth Heneghan-Gilfillan
The Pennsylvania State University
First generation college students, in comparison to their non-first generation peers, are less likely to persist to graduation, less academically prepared, feel a lack of support in college, have lower educational and career aspirations, and lack cultural capital. The session will describe today’s first generation college student and what supports are currently offered in college. Attendees will learn more about what resources are needed to provide further support to first generation students and what to look for in programs as students decide on their college. The presentation will offer research on this population as well as examples of programs and interventions that have proven effective.
