Access Granted: Removing Barriers and Creating Opportunities for First-generation Students

PC 08

As first-generation college students are increasingly present across higher education, completion rates for this population lag behind continuing-generation peers. This achievement gap is due to systemic barriers preventing success coupled with too few intentional opportunities to support this population. This workshop will partner national data and evidence-based practices with approaches being used at multiple institutional types to shift high impact practices into tailored first-generation solutions that result in improved student outcomes.
