Want to share your First Gen support?
Keynote speaker and expert First Gen researcher, Dr. La'Tonya (LT) Rease Miles, shared valuable perspective on First Gen identity development and graduate research resources within academia and the media. In her talk, she highlighted common First Gen experiences including addressing the "hidden curriculum" of invisible rules and behaviors in higher ed, academic achievement guilt, and creating intentional spaces for family and community where First Gen students are often weighted with serving as cultural brokers for their respective communities. Dr. Rease Miles shared important practices for inclusive classroom environments as well as takeaways in which the entire Chicago School community can support First Gen students.
