The First Generation Student Experience: Implications for Campus Practice, and Strategies for Improving Persistence and Success

Product Description: More first-generation students are attending college than ever before. Despite this, there is no agreed definition about the term, and few institutions can quantify how many first-generation students are enrolled. At the heart of the book are 14 first-person narratives — by first-generation students spanning freshman to graduate years — that help the reader get to grips with the variety of ethnic and economic categories to which they belong. The book concludes by defining 14 key issues that institutions need to address and offers a course of action for addressing them.
