The term “first-generation” evokes a strong range of emotions for higher education administrators. University funding sources are becoming scarce and performance demands are steadily increasing.
A trio of researchers will discuss the most recent trends and challenges facing first-generation students at the 2019 Florida College Access Network Summit. DeOnte Brown, Director of Retention at Clemson University; Rose-May Frazier, Director of Advising at Florida State University; and Dr. David Kenton, Senior Associate Director for OneStop at Florida International University will lead a session titled “First-Generation College Students — Practice & Research of Successful Retention Strategies.”
During the latest episode of FCAN’s Summit Speaker Series podcast, DeOnte, Rose-May, and David discussed their own postsecondary journeys and some of the misconceptions surrounding first-generation students. Click below to listen.
