Build your network to support your work with first-generation students.


As the number of first-generation college students increases at the undergraduate level, it is more important than ever to have support systems and resources in place. As you try out new interventions for your first-generation students, having feedback and hearing from others in similar positions will help you to assess and refine your approach.

Join us for a one-hour discussion on both what has worked and what challenges you have encountered in working with first-generation students. Our expert—Daphne Rankin, PhD—will guide you through conversation about what interventions have worked for you in the past, what interventions you are looking to stage next, and what challenges you yourself have encountered in your work with first-generation students. You will also have the opportunity to share resources and connections with your peers and brainstorm next steps for overcoming current or future roadblocks.


Who Should Attend

Past attendees of the virtual conference Developing a Comprehensive System of Support for First-Generation Students will benefit from this discussion. If you have not attended this past program, you will still benefit if you are faculty and staff who are actively working with first-generation undergraduate students on your campus. Meanwhile, if you are new to planning and implementing first-generation programming, we encourage you to first attend Developing a Comprehensive System of Support for First-Generation Students in the fall of 2022 (coming soon).
