First Gen Fridays
08/05/22 - First Generation Organizations: Come one, come all to discuss our college campus’ First Generation Student Organizations and learn about ideas to start an organization on your campus. If you have an organization you would like to highlight, please email Sandra Avalos at savalos@ksu.edu to be put on the agenda.

09/02/22 - Supporting Parents of First Gen Students: Come join the First Generation Advising Community in an open discussion to exchange information about resources that may currently be in use. We know that our first-gen students come into the university needing support navigating this new experience and learning the language that goes with it, but we tend to forget that the parents of first-gen students are in the same situation. We readily ask things of parents (financial aid information) and throw around terms such as FERPA without ever stopping to clarify what we are asking for or what the terms mean. FERPA makes it easy to brush aside addressing parent questions, but for students as a whole parents are an important part of the support system. What can we as advisors do to better support and educate parents of first-gen students so they can better support their students?

Meeting is over, you can not register now. If you have any questions, please contact Meeting host: Liz Alcántara.
