First Generation and Education Abroad: Strategy, Support, and Asset Based Pedagogy

Wednesday, April 19, 1:00 PM @ 1:00 pm - 4:15 pm

Wednesday, April 19, 2023
1:00 pm – 04:15 pm EDT/UTC-4

First generation college students are defined as individuals whose parents or guardians did not attend or complete a college degree. These students are often highly resilient and adaptable, skills well suited to successful education abroad experiences. First generation students also benefit greatly from high impact educational practices such as education abroad, yet they are often underrepresented in education abroad programming.

This workshop will share resources and strategies to create more inclusive policies and program structures to improve first generation college student access to education abroad, using the Standards of Good Practice in Education Abroad as a foundation.

Who Should Attend This Workshop?


  • International educators, education abroad advisors and recruiters, faculty advisors, academic advisors, diversity equity and inclusion professionals, financial aid advisors, student life professionals.

How You’ll Benefit


Participants will be able to:

  • Understand and articulate the unique perspective first generation college students bring to their educational journey;
  • Apply current models of asset based advising designed to guide and support First Gen students through the education abroad cycle;
  • Advocate across campus units for students who identify as first generation;
  • Initiate and enact changes to policies and structures which have served as a barrier to participation for first generation college students.
