Spill the Tea: An Alumni Counselor's Guide to First-Gen Student Success

Registration is Closed

Time & Location

Apr 12, 3:00 PM – 4:30 PM CDT

About this Webinar

College enrollment and completion are often regarded as a litmus test for K-12 education. And while national trends indicate a rise in post-secondary enrollment, we know that a successful college experience is not created equally—especially for first-generation students from low-income families. As a catalyst for educational equity in Chicago, UIC College Prep has Alumni Counselors committed to supporting alumni towards college completion. We coach alumni through systematic barriers and empower them to create multi-generational change in achieving their educational goals. We are building lasting relationships and effecting change in the lives of students, families, and communities of color. In this webinar teachers and administrators will:

1. learn about the unique challenges of first-generation college students directly

from our alumni;

2. gain insight into UIC College Prep’s strategies to support this population; and

3. take away best practices for enhancing alumni supports.
