Event Information

First Generation Connections

Presenter(s):
Campus Faculty/Staff
Description:
Please join us as we hear from members of our campus community who have taken steps to reach out to first gen students in their program/college and to brainstorm 1st steps for your department/team to initiate connections that could increase retention and graduation of your students.

As we continue to be 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.

Lunch provided by TILT. Please register using the link below. Limit 40.

Note: Registration closes at 5 pm on April 16.
