**Reminders: Please bring a notebook and pen to every session, and wear your CAC name badge at all times.**

Dear CAC family,

Welcome to our Adviser Forum East in New York City! We are thrilled to have you here in the Big Apple and are grateful to our host chapter, the awesome NYU Corps!

Our theme this year goes to the heart of CAC’s mission -- Advancing Opportunity. The goal over the next few days is to recommit ourselves to advancing opportunity in various ways. We hope you will discover best practices from your peers, engage with the research, reflect on your journey and what may lie ahead by interacting with the alumni panel and industry workshops, and be inspired by our guest speakers whose stories capture in powerful ways the journey to advancing opportunity.

On behalf of our national team and Board of Directors, we are grateful for the work that each of you — 716 advisers serving 210,000 students in 16 states across the country — do every day. We continue to build a national movement at a critical time in our nation’s history. Let us commit to ensuring every student hears those four key words, “I believe in you” and, together, we advance opportunity.

It is an honor to serve with you!

Adviser Session #4: Making a House a Home - Finding Family in the Institution

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Join us for a discussion of best practices for preparing our students for the transition to college, with a particular focus on low-income and first-generation students who may need assistance finding community within their future institutions. It’s no secret that many “prestigious” colleges and universities have historically had—and continue to have—low populations of low-income, first-generation students, especially for students of color. When students from these communities are considering such schools, they may not necessarily understand how disruptive this move may be to their social, academic, and professional development. We’ll offer suggestions for helping students navigate the transition, including finding advocates, locating important institutional resources, and building tangible skills for relationship building. We’ll also provide examples of resources found at colleges within Rhode Island and share the research methodology that will enable you to conduct this work within your own communities.
