Description

This interactive session will feature the experiences and reflections of a current graduate assistant with First to Fly: First Generation at Monmouth. First to Fly represents a set of student-centered campus initiatives and programs designed to offer academic, social, and personal support for Monmouth University students who identify as a first-generation. The central objective of these initiatives is to help first-generation students identify, develop, and maintain the competencies they may need to persist to graduation. The work of GAs in first-generation student initiatives can be a significant factor in the success of efforts to bridge gaps, model behavior and build community for both undergraduate and graduate students who identify as first-gen. First to Fly wants to help students thrive at Monmouth, not just survive and graduate assistants can play a vital role to achieve this goal. Participants in this session are encouraged to contribute their questions, comments, and experiences to this virtual dialogue about best practices in leveraging the assets of graduate students and the campus community in first-generation student success programs.
