Persistence through graduation.
These three concepts likely regularly cause you worry as you work to ensure nothing is impeding your students’ ability to succeed.
First-generation students bring unique challenges to the table, as they sometimes balance two identities for themselves — one for home and one for college. Being the first in their family to embark on the college experience can be both anxiety-provoking and exciting. Family members may be supportive, but may not have the cultural or social capital to help their students successfully navigate this strange new world. This is where you can help.
Identify your first-generation students’ strengths, as well as take an active role in helping them transition into, through and beyond college.
Join us on April 25, 2017, and in just 90 minutes, you and your staff will be able to employ best practices and effective strategies to help your first-generation students overcome their unique challenges and succeed socially, emotionally and academically.
Wendy Bruun serves as Executive Director of Student Affairs at Northern Arizona University, providing leadership and oversight to First-Generation Programs, Student Affairs Mentoring, TRIO programs, and the Northern Arizona College Resource Center. (Click here for full bio)
