    Continuing Education Workshop: Counseling First-Generation Students About College

    Wednesday, February 9, 2022 at 12:00 PM until 1:00 PMEastern Standard Time

    Counseling first-generation students about college

    Working with first-generation students - that is, those who are in the first generation of their families to go to college - presents a counselor with special challenges as well as potentially great rewards. The transition to college can be bumpy for any student, but especially those in the first generation of their family to attend a university. This workshop will provide counselors an understanding of the unique needs of #firstgen students and strategies on how best to guide them. 

    Facilitated by:
    Michelle Davis, Chief Diversity Officer
    Dr. Janelle L. West, Associate Dean of Graduate and Continuing Studies
