      EVENT DETAILS
      First Cats First-Gen Intro Training

      The First Cats First-Gen Intro Training is the first in a series of professional development trainings to provide faculty and staff with knowledge, tools and ideas for how they can center the experience of first-generation college students in their work. Often times, colleges and universities have implicit expectations of what a student should know and do, and this can often create unnecessary challenges for first-generation college students who may not have family or friends to decode the student experience for them. This workshop will provide faculty and staff with: Context for understanding first-generation college students at the University of Arizona Tools to make your classroom, program or office more first-gen friendly (which actually makes them welcoming to all students) Research and practices that improve first-generation student success Support for you in enhancing your work with first-generation college students This is a FREE professional development opportunity provided by First Cats & Thrive Center. All participants will also receive an office placard to display their support for first-generation college students and a First Cats t-shirt (while supplies last).
