Abstract:

MSU was recently named to the 2021 cohort of First-gen forward institutions by the Center for First-Generation Student Success and NASPA. This designation recognizes MSU’s commitment to student success and support for first-generation college students. As part of this designation, MSU will have access to new national resources, experts, and collaborations in our journey to close opportunity gaps for students. Join us for a roundtable session where we will explore national and institutional data on first-generation college students while crowdsourcing ideas for this new initiative, potential collaborations, and identifying the needs of first-gen students at MSU. This interactive session will help inform and develop our campus team to create a campus-wide first-generation student success effort.
