ACUE’s newest toolkit, “Cultivating a Sense of Belonging in First-Generation Students,” is a comprehensive resource that offers research-based strategies for meeting the needs of first-generation students and their families. You’ll learn approaches that you can use to demystify campus language, foster a sense of belonging for families, and share your story to minimize the potential effects of imposter phenomenon. Plus, the toolkit includes a recording of the complementary webinar Fostering Belonging and Supporting Success for First-Generation Students for those interested in taking a deeper dive.
Ask Yourself: What challenges do first-generation students on your campus experience, and how do you currently support their needs? What additional steps might you take to support first-generation students and their families?
