Overview:

As 2-year and 4-year institutions place increased attention on student success and retention, the preparedness and transition of first-generation college-bound students, especially during the freshman and sophomore years, is more important than ever. So, how can faculty and administrators better identify and support first-generation students early in their academic career? How can they do this in a way that addresses student success at every level?

This webinar will examine the path and support a first-generation student can receive through the lens of two TRIO programs, Talent Search, and Special Support Services. In this webinar, participants will learn strategies that address providing college access opportunities, maximizing student achievement, supporting successful transition and persistence to the college environment, and creating opportunities for global citizenship. These success strategies support first-generation students and are transferable to other students, whether you have a TRIO program or not on campus.

Objectives:

  • Examine the academic, social, and financial needs of first-generation and low-income students and their impact on college access, transition, persistence, and graduation
  • Identify institutional college access campus supports and representatives to create and increase collaborative systems of approach and student support
  • Determine which campus stakeholders would most benefit from the methods discussed (e.g., Admissions, Academic Support, First-Year Experience, Student Affairs, Financial Aid)
  • Explore institutional strategies for strengthening K-12 pipelines to recruit, retain, and graduate more prepared students
  • Share methods for sustainability given financial restraints and potential budget decreases
