Our panel "The Invisible 34%: First-Gen College Students" was selected for SXSW EDU 2018!
WE DID IT!
In partnership with former First Lady Michelle Obama's Reach Higher and Better Make Room campaign, we're putting some serious shine on the 34% of college students who are the first in their families to go.
This is because of you! Your votes for our panel are what got us this opportunity to share an important and often overlooked story. We love ya.
This panel comes right on the heels of our first of it's kind poll on first-gen students' educational experience. Check out my synopsis video as a little taste of what's to come:
We're sending a current first-gen student and an SFER staff member to Austin. Conference is in March and we'll hit you with links to watch live on FB. Mark those calendars.
What, you don't follow us on Insta? That hurts. Fix it.
Texas, here we come.
