First-Generation Students

WCSA members Colby King, associate professor of sociology, and Sean McPherson, assistant professor of art, (both of Bridgewater State University) contributed to an article on understanding the needs of first-generation students on campus. “New Territory: Ensuring First-Generation Students Feel at Home and Succeed on Campus” appeared in Bridgewater Magazine.

King will start a new position in the fall as assistant professor of sociology at the University of South Carolina at Upstate.  Click here to read his views on what the next generation of working-class Americans will look like.
