2020 NASPA Annual Conference

Connecting Academic and Career Development with First-Generation College Student Success: Navigating Perceptions, Access, and Participation (ID 212)

High-impact practices (HIPs) influence first generation college students' (FGCS) perceptions of campus climate, access to forms of capital, and their involvement behaviors. Student affairs professionals can support FSCS success by: knowing where to access HIPs; understanding the importance of student participation; and, understanding how HIPs relate to career preparation. The presenters will provide new and mid-level professionals with tools they can use to assist first-generation college students in examining the relationship between academic success and career development through the use of high-impact practices.
