LECTURE SERIES #3Title: From Recruitment to Commencement: Elevating the Experience of First Generation College StudentsDescription: Educators and politicians nationwide are urging colleges and universities to recruit and graduate a larger share of first generation college students. In fact, this population makes up 30% of all college students. Additionally, University Business Magazine states that 24% of those students are in fact low income and first generation. Furthermore, the National Center for Education Statistics shows that 11% of first generation, low-income students graduate within the first six years. Through engaging conversation and exercises, this session will explore strategies to enhance recruitment, retention, and completion of first generation college students.
