First Generation College Grads Pay It Forward

Calling all college grads who identify as first generation (parent(s) / caregiver(s) did not have a bachelor’s degree from a U.S. college or university) or from a low-income background! This SXSWedu, let’s invest our success in the next generation. We’ll gather attendees from all fields, connect over *non-academic challenges* we faced in college, and create practical, publicly available video resources for current first generation and low-income college students right here in this session.

Learning Objectives

  1. Create awareness of the ubiquitous influence of first generation and low-income college graduates at SXSWedu.
  2. Recognize commonalities in non-academic challenges between attendees’ college experience and that of current students.
  3. Collaborate with peers to create a practical resource for current first generation and low-income college students right here in this session.
