Description

This session explores the complexities of being a first-generation college student. We examine potential innovations and solutions to the challenges first generation students face at Minnesota State, Mankato. While possessing many strengths, research shows that first generation status means students often take longer to graduate and are at higher risk of dropping out. We are attempting to better understand stressors that students encounter locally and seeking to develop programs to improve their experiences.
