November 15, 2021 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm

The George Mason University Stearns Center for Teaching and Learning and First-Gen+ Center will host a dynamic and thoughtful online discussion featuring Dr. Blake Silver (Assistant Professor of Sociology, George Mason University) and Dr. Lisa Nunn (Director of the Center for Educational Excellence and Professor of Sociology, University of San Diego). Both Dr. Silver and Dr. Nunn will share findings from their recently published books (The Cost of Inclusion: How Student Conformity Leads to Inequality on College Campuses; and College Belonging: How First-Year and First-Generation Students Navigate Campus Life, respectively) and invite questions from faculty and staff on how best to engage with and support success for first-generation college students.
