First Generation Faculty: Experiences, Challenges, Lessons

Many Williams faculty are First Gen, the first in their families to attend college. On this panel First Gen faculty will talk about their own experiences navigating college, graduate school, and careers. What challenges did they face as first gen, and how did they meet those challenges? How did they navigate college culture, family relationships, financial challenges, and the academic path? What advice do they have for current first-gen students, especially for those who are interested in academic careers? Panelists include Lucie Schmidt, Greg Mitchell, Enrique Peacock-Lopez, and Tony Sheppard. Moderated by Tara Watson. Co-sponsored by the Williams Poverty Initiative.
