There is growing recognition of the need to support first-generation college students (students from families in which neither parent has earned a bachelor’s degree) as they navigate higher education. First-generation students bring much to campus – strengths, experiences, and perspectives different from non-first-generation students – but they also tend to need support, given that they are often unfamiliar with the tacit norms, values, and practices of higher education. In this community of practice, we will work collaboratively to understand the first-generation experience in the college classroom and the pedagogical practices we can use to better support them.
