First generation, low-income students face extraordinary challenges in adjusting to the academic culture and high expectations of Carleton. Academic advisers can help these students make the most of their Carleton experience through active listening and routine follow-up. This panel will explore what we know about first-gen, low-income students at Carleton based on institutional data and experience. The panelists will discuss some high-impact practices in advising and mentoring.
