Engaging Family to Bolster First-generation College Student Well-Being and Success

Virtual Live Briefings Student Success

This Live Briefing is focused on reframing the first-generation student experience from independence from family to interdependence with family in the college-going process and in supporting student well-being. Presenters will speak directly to student holism, exploring first-generation college students’ families in the pre-college process, in orientation, in the classroom, and in the larger aspects of college life.

About

Approaching the work of serving first-generation college students with the entire student (and constellation of family, community, etc.) in mind is critical to their well-being and success. This Live Briefing speaks directly to this holism as we explore including first-generation college students’ families in the pre-college process, in orientation, in the classroom, and in the larger aspects of college life. At George Mason University, first-generation student support offerings focus on family from an asset-based approach and aim to reframe how families are connected to the language, meaning, and process of higher education.

Learning Outcomes

Participants will:

  • articulate the role(s) family play in first-generation student college experiences​;
  • recognize key elements of first-generation college student well-being​; and
  • identify practices on how to bolster constructive family involvement.
