First-generation students have parents who did not pursue a 4-year degree. Such learners are integral to the makeup of the student body at Lafayette. First-gen learners can experience a variety of academic challenges and may not always have the cultural capital to effectively navigate through college. During this session, participants will develop an understanding of how Lafayette defines first-gen students, identify specific challenges that first-gen students can experience in college, and consider how to support first-gen students in the classroom and beyond.
