March NACADA webinar

By Michael Lynch

The next NACADA webinar for the spring semester, "Advising Needs of First Generation Students: Taking a Closer Look" will be at 1 p.m. Wednesday, March 23, in 207 K-State Student Union.

In this Web event, Louis Macias, chair of NACADA's First Generation College Student Advising Interest Group, will build on his initial presentation, Academic Advising and Social Justice: Privilege, Diversity, and Student Success, April 2015, as well as the personal stories shared by our First-Gen NACADA Leaders in Advising Needs of First Generation Students: NACADA Leaders Share their experiences, September 2015.

Macias will be joined by Heather Doyle who will share the results of her work on a project providing support to first generation students through mandatory advising and student success programming.

Join us for an informative hour as we consider the full spectrum of first generation student experience, from those who are high-achieving to those who enter college having not yet met the general entrance requirements for their program of study.

Presenters include: 

Louis Macias, director of admissions and pre-college programs, Wisconsin School of Business, University of Wisconsin, Madison.

Heather Doyle, director of student services, Dalhousie University, Agricultural Campus.
