Light Reading: First Generation Students and Faculty (Hosted Online via Zoom)

Celebrate National First-Generation College Celebration Day on Nov. 8th by joining our online discussion of two short readings on First-Gen student experiences and the ways in which we can better support our own First-Gen students at Temple. Then, join our in-person roundtable discussion on Wednesday, Nov. 17th at 12pm for a deeper discussion of the needs and concerns of First-Gen students and the resources available at Temple to support their learning and success.

The two readings for this session are:
