What’s in it for me? A first generation student’s perspective on college successRegister here.

imfirstSupporting first-generation college students is a key goal for many colleges and universities. Unfortunately, nine out of 10 low-income, first-gens will not earn a bachelor’s degree by age 24. The dropout rate for these students is four times higher than that of peers whose parents have a postsecondary education. In this webinar, we’ll examine some emerging trends and best-practices for promoting college success for first-gens and learn about a nonprofit organization that is bringing colleges together to share what’s working and learn from one another toward a shared goal on increasing college access and success for first-gens.

Participants will:

1) Examine model programs that are successfully supporting first-generation college student success and persistence to graduation.

2) Take away new ideas for improving or starting new campus efforts on behalf of first-generation college students.

3) Learn about CSO’s work in partnership with four-year colleges and universities on behalf of first-generation college and how your institution can get involved.

Center for Student Opportunity (CSO) is a national nonprofit working in partnership with close to 200 four-year colleges and universities to promote and strengthen college opportunities for first-generation college students. CSO’s ImFirst.org web application is a college search and planning tool designed with first-gens in mind and a campaign collecting YouTube video stories from first-gen students and graduates that inspire and offer advice to the next generation of students who will be first. 

Presenters:

Matt Rubinoff, Executive Director of I’m First.

Brenda Cordero, College Partner Relations Associate of I’m First.
