First Gen: Run the World
First generation students are resilient. Their strength is an asset. They may not know the unspoken rules of academia, but neither do first gen faculty. How can faculty support student paths to success? Labels like ‘first generation’ or ‘first in family’ are precariously political. How can first gens relate to and with the campus experience? In this Ted-style talk, Melissa Scholes Young, first generation student turned first generation faculty, will share her experience navigating the new territory.
