First-gen 101: Developing an Asset-Based Approach to Student Success

Saturday, March 9 | 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. (local time)

Over half of all college-going students identify as first-generation, and the higher education community must play an active role in advancing the success of first-generation students. Implementing an asset-based approach to first-gen student success begins with an understanding of the first-gen student definition and intersectional identities. The presenters will review the literature to ground a foundational understanding, discuss a framework for implementing an asset-based approach, and provide examples of model institutions.
