First-Generation Student Retention

Why are college persistence and completion rates often so low for first-generation and under-resourced students? What changes can colleges make in the classroom and on campus to help these students succeed in higher education and in life? These workshops will help you understand both the challenges and strengths your students from generational poverty bring to campus—and how you can harness those strengths for higher student achievement and a more supportive college climate.dv740090
