This project is an annotated bibliography of the research from 2008 to 2019 on first-generation students. The purpose of combing through a decade of material was to help us figure out how we got to our current understanding of first-generation students and first-generation college graduates. The authors attempted to answer the question “How did we get here?” and found that, while there has been a flurry of research and practice related to the first-generation student experience, there is so much more we can and should be studying and sharing.
