“Supporting First-Generation Students in the College Classroom”
A #ttgpchat about the experiences of students who are the first in their family to go to college with:
Trinity Washington University (Washington, D.C.)
This conversation will examine the experiences and challenges facing first-generation students in college that go beyond academics.
We will explore:
How do first-generation students support one another at college?
Do first-generation students of color require different supports?
Do these students receive enough guidance from faculty, administration, and family to be academically successful?
How does the college ratings debate impact first-generation students’ experiences?
How will the new Parent PLUS Loan requirements impact first-generation students of color?
