Next Generation First Generation™: Integrating Critical Pedagogy, Inquiry, and Student Success

Next Generation First Generation (NXFG)™ provides an opportunity for collaboration between professionals and researchers who address inequity in education, particularly for first generation and/or low income students-the new majority. NXFG serves as a clearinghouse for researchers to research and publish progressive works addressing pathways to retention, graduation, and career success, creating the vanguard for this area of study.

The Next Generation of First Generation™ include individuals who are first in their family to:

  • Attend or complete college
  • Attend or complete graduate or professional school
  • Pursue professional-level positions
  • Pursue tenured faculty positions
  • “Come out” with values and goals different from their origin
