Exploring student involvement among first-generation college students

As the number of first-generation college students (FGCS) increase at California State University, Chico (CSUC), there is much to learn about their involvement on campus. First-generation college students struggle with classroom and campus involvement on campus. This Project offers data from first-generation and non-first generation college students (NFGCS) on campus. This Project focused on the level of involvement of first generation college students and barriers to classroom and campus involvement. The first goal of this Project was to investigate and understand how classroom and campus climate influence student involvement and participation on CSUC campus. The second goal was the development of a campus report for the university that provides faculty, staff, and departments on campus with recommendations on how to create a more inclusive and diverse classroom and campus environment.
