Event Information

What would a first generation friendly classroom/department look like?

Presenter(s):
Paul Thayer, Mary Ontiveros, Barb Musslewhite, and Antonette Aragon
Description:
Paul ThayerAs we become more focused on student learning and success as a University, we’re recognizing that first generation status (that is, neither parent having earned a bachelor’s degree) is a critical factor. Over the last five years, the six-year graduation rates for first generation students have averaged nine percentage points lower than students who are not first generation. Please join us for an interactive lunchtime panel discussion examining ways that we can assist our first generation students as they attempt to maneuver the higher education system. Panel members include: Paul Thayer, Mary Ontiveros, Barb Musslewhite, and Antonette Aragon with additional insights offered by faculty involved in First Generation Faculty Initiative. Lunch will be provided by TILT so please register with Deb Colbert before noon on Friday, November 8th.
