Higher education and first-generation students: cultivating community, voice, and place for the new majority

Jehangir, Rashné Rustom
Publication Year:

Higher Education and First-Generation Students offers a rich understanding of the experience of students who are the first in their families to attend college. Jehangir contends that first-generation students are isolated and marginalized on many large college campuses, and she considers learning communities and critical multicultural pedagogies as vehicles to cultivate community, voice, and place for this growing group of students. This book is a theoretically informed study of the lived experience of FG students and draws on their voices to demonstrate how their insights compare with what we, as educators, think we know about them.
