ATW: First-generation and Non-traditional Students

Event Description 

First-generation and non-traditional students bring unique assets, needs, and expectations to our classrooms. In this workshop we will discuss this growing and diverse population of students in order to gain a better understanding of how to meet the needs of a diverse student body as well as what the benefits are of having diverse perspectives and experiences represented in our classrooms. This workshop will feature a panel of students, instructors, and administrators who will share their experiences and help you think through these issues in your own teaching.

This workshop fills the CCTP requirement for an ATW engaging inclusion and diversity.
