This event has passed, but stay tuned for our next Teach-In on Friday, April 8th at 1pm. 

Join members of our Baruch Community on Friday, February 18, 2022, to elevate and celebrate the voices of first generation college students and college graduates at our Virtual Teach-In on Supporting First Generation College Students.

Our speakers include recent and well-established Baruch Alumni and Staff who were the first in their families to complete college. The panels will be moderated by current Baruch first generation college students.  We will hear their stories, struggles and triumphs. We will listen, reflect, and connect. Together, we will explore the ways in which we all can make a difference in students’ lives. The event is sponsored by The Office of the Provost and will be led by Dr. Anna D’Souza, the Provost Innovation Fellow on Inclusive Teaching and Associate Professor at the Austin W. Marxe School of Public and International Affairs.
