Plaskett, Sean; Bali, Diksha; Nakkula, Michael J.; Harris, John
Phi Delta Kappan, v99 n7 p47-51 Apr 2018
Transitioning from high school to college can be a formidable challenge, especially for students who are the first in their family to attend college (first-generation) and/or are from low-income backgrounds. The authors' qualitative investigation of a college mentoring program illuminates the potential value of relatable peer mentors in helping these students get off to a good start.
