If your only tool is a hammer then every problem looks like a nail
From Jeff Layne on March 2nd, 2018
Advisors, Academic Advising Programs
This presentation is subtitled: “Fixing First Gen problems with the right tools.” Accordingly, the speakers – both advisors in Academic Advising Programs – discuss the need to revise outreach to assist first generation students at Chico State. They provide context for this need with a history of the programs created over the last several decades to assist lower-income and/or underrepresented minority students to attend college. Ms. Flores and Mr. Soto then cite graduation rates and other statistics they believe indicate a failure of the current academic system to adequately assist these students. They provide information and resources to students/faculty/staff to increase student success and share new approaches implemented by Academic Advising Programs.
