These first generation college students will achieve success while at Lipscomb University, and plan to achieve so much more after they leave Lipscomb. Being the first in the family to attend college, these students have much to look forward to and so much to pass along to their families.

Program participants:
  • 10-12 students currently involved (all women- Latina women, two African American, one Caucasian) 
  • Goal for Spring- add male participants and continue to reach all student demographics

Student Involvement: 

Attendance is collected every time a student visits the ASC. Adding social events during the spring semester will be another way to measure student involvement.

Academic Performance:
First-term persistence can be measured through the ASC's current data collection program called Map-Works. The analysis of student GPA will be benchmarked by varying outcomes set by the Director of Student Advocacy and the Academic Coaching Coordinator. These outcomes inform future coaching agreements and retention of the program participants. 

First generation college student quantitative data:
Because first generation college student data is collected from the beginning of the admissions process, Lipscomb will now know exactly how many students are enrolling as first generation college students. Based on the data collected from the Fall 2013 Enrollment Deposit, 142 freshman identified themselves as a first generation college student, compared to the 684 freshman students that enrolled during the Fall 2013 semester. Roughly one in six freshman students consider themselves as a first generation college student. These numbers demonstrate that there is a community of first generation college students at Lipscomb, and these students need support in order to be successful college graduates.
