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.
- 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.
