First Generation College Students: What to Expect—How to Help

Two BU faculty members, who were both first generation college students themselves, will take their learning's from a recent Lilly conference as well as their own personal experiences and present one contributing factor to 1st generation college students’ reported lower levels of engagement and academic success in college—limited interaction with faculty members. They will examine 1st generation faculty-student interactions and the correlation with academic success. Strategies will be discussed to increase interaction and hopefully increase 1st generation students' success in college.
Faculty: Beth Rogowsky, Regina Bobak.
