Call for Manuscripts: Focus on First Generation Students – Aug 1

Posted on July 30, 2019

Guest Editors: Bridgette Cram and Elizabeth M. Béjar, Florida International University

Institutions of higher education are focused on closing the achievement gaps within increasingly diverse student populations. Many students are intellectually capable of academic success in college and possess valuable non-cognitive attributes that are key to thriving in school and in life, yet broadly effective institutional strategies to promote their academic achievement remain elusive. This is especially true for first generation students, who are less likely to fulfill their academic potential. This issue of Metropolitan Universities journal invites full manuscripts that document evidence-based strategies that leverage first-generation students’ strengths and help them to overcome the challenges faced in higher education. Full manuscripts due August 1, 2019.
