2018 NASPA Annual Conference

Becoming an Individual and Institutional Advocate for First-generation College Students

PC 34

A large proportion of college students identify as first-generation - 62 percent at all postsecondary institutions and 47 percent at four-year institutions. However, first-generation college students graduate with baccalaureate degrees at lower rates than their continuing-generation peers. This pre-conference workshop will focus on advocacy of first-generation college students at an institutional and individual level for student affairs professionals of all functional areas and at all levels within a college or university.
