Join IlliAAC for an afternoon webinar and discussion on a increasingly important topic: First Generation Students
When: Wednesday, 9/16
Time: 1:00 – 3:00 p.m.
Location: 514 Illini Union Bookstore
The Webinar will run from 1:00 – 2:00 p.m. and be followed with a discussion with Cory Major from the Office of Minority Student Affairs.
We hope you can attend.
Current NACADA President John Paul (JP) Regalado, President-Elect David Spight, Vice-President-Elect Dana Zahorik, and Executive Director Charlie Nutt all understand from personal experience exactly what the First Lady – and the students in the K-State documentary – are talking about, for all four were themselves First Generation Students. Sponsored by the NACADA First Generation College Student Advising Interest Group, on Wednesday, September 16th, JP, David, Dana, and Charlie will come to the Webinar platform to discuss their experiences – what challenges they faced, what inspired them, what helped them overcome. Plan to join us for an inspiring hour as our top NACADA Leaders share what it has meant to them to be First Gen Students and what we can do as academic advisors to help First Gen students achieve academic success.
