This Oct. 2016 Education Policy Networking Event focuses on first generation college students – generally defined as those whose parents or guardians do not have a college degree – face unique challenges in entering and succeeding in higher education. Research has shown that these students complete college at a much lower rate than their peers. According to a 2011 Pell Institute study, just 11 percent of low-income first generation students graduated with a degree within six years of entering college.
Panelists discussed what we have learned so far, with a focus on Colorado outcomes. What’s making a difference? What doesn’t work? In an era of constrained resources and great need, what should our priorities be for serving these students? How can we best leverage our efforts? What do we still need to know?
