 *HigherEd Careers: Examining the First Generation College Student*
*Part II: 'Making College Accessible' Series*   Continuing with our "Making
College Accessible" series, this month we are discussing the topic of First
Generation College Students (FGCS). We are fortunate to have as our expert
guest Ms. Cynthia Demetriou, Director for Retention, Office of Undergraduate
Education at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Ms. Demetriou
discusses the challenges and opportunities that FGCS students may encounter
and shares her insight into helping these driven students succeed.

  [image: Image of Andrew Hibel]   *Andrew Hibel, HigherEdJobs:* * The
Council of Opportunity in Education referenced a paper stating that
low-income and first-generation students who were involved in the civic
engagement activities in their larger community can actually increase their
engagement in the campus community, which improves their overall retention
rates in college. Do you think community involvement (both local and campus)
is a key to helping in the retention of students? *     [image: Image of
Cynthia Demetriou]   *Ms. Cynthia Demetriou, University of North Carolina at
Chapel Hill:* Absolutely. I believe student success is a combination of
academics, wellness and engagement. Successful retention efforts take all
three of these facets of the student experience into consideration.
Community engagement is critical to retention and persistence. Students who
are more engaged increase their commitment to an institution as well as
their commitment to success at that institution. I am very interested in
what successful students attribute their success in college to. When I ask
graduating students what they attribute their success to they often indicate
community involvement both on and off campus. This community involvement
takes the form of relationships and participation in programs based on
campus and in prior schools, as well as in service, civic, cultural,
political, and religious organizations. In my interactions with students who
are the first in their family, and sometimes first in their community, to
attend college I have learned there is a great desire to give back to their
community during college and after graduation. Carolina Firsts has also
drawn interest from faculty, alumni and community members who were once FGCS
and would now like to give back to the FGCS community. So, yes, community
involvement is key to student retention. I would even say it is more than
"local or campus." Students at Carolina take a global perspective to their
education and many pursue their undergraduate studies through opportunities
to travel the world. These experiences, while they are traveling elsewhere,
actually do retain them at the University. Our Honors program recently
developed a new tagline which states, "Come Here, Go Anywhere." This phrase
captures the spirit of Carolina's undergraduates. Students who come here
believe in global community involvement.
