Sarcedo / Journal of First-generation Student Success / August 2022
First-generation, low-income (FLI) college students of Color are less likely to complete a college degree compared to their more advantaged peers, yet little is known about the classroom and cocurricular experiences that support their achievement. Using an anti-deficit achievement framework to situate this narrative inquiry, the author conducted semi-structured interviews with successful FLI college students of Color and recent graduates to understand how interactions with faculty influenced students’ success and graduation. This analysis establishes a need for additional faculty professional development around supporting marginalized students and contributes to an understanding of best practices to bolster FLI college students of Color success.
