Low Income & First-Gen Aren’t the Same Thing!

Recording: Low Income & First-Gen Aren’t the Same Thing!, Date TBA

Education advocates, wonks and journalists tend to conflate the terms “low-income” and “first-generation,” using them interchangeably. But not all first-gen students come to college with financial hardship. And not all low-income students are the first in their family to attend college. How do the needs of low-income and first-gen students vary? And where do they converge? How can institutions and advocates shape policy—and practice—in ways that create pathways to opportunity for both.
