The effort that goes into facilitating a positive mentor experience often pays off. Successful graduates often cite that such relationships, whether in the form of a faculty member, peer adviser, or alumnus helped them stay enrolled and find jobs post-grad.

So, how can colleges help first-gen students form these relationships? In the upcoming Virtual Forum hosted by The Chronicle, a panel of college mentoring experts will gather to discuss how to create an atmosphere that encourages these bonds.

Join us on March 28th at 2 p.m. ET for "Mentoring Programs for First-Generation Students" to hear more about the benefits of mentorship programs for your institution.
