"Beyond a Deficit View" with Danette Buie (First Generation Initiative Winter Quarter Speaker Series)
Understanding The Experiences of First-Generation Students Who Participate in College Access and Success Community-Based Organizations
We invite you to join Dr. Danette Buie as she presents her research, providing a critical perspective for how first-generation college graduates make sense of, and attach meaning to their participation in college access and success community-based organizations. Buie explores how this contributes to college completion and also offer counter-narratives on the reconstruction of first-generation identity to symbolize empowerment, community, and resilience. Practical recommendations will be presented for all stakeholders as a result of the research findings.
