Title: International Education Advising for First-Generation and High Financial Need Students: Building Bridges Across the Intersections

This session will examine the often -- but not always -- overlapping needs and concerns facing First-Generation, High Financial Need, and First Abroad students in higher education and how those play into the process of preparing for and participating in education abroad. With these common concerns in mind, we then turn to staff that serve first-gen or low-income students to discuss the nuanced approaches that international education advisors can take to collaborate in effective ways and reach their target student audiences with information specifically addressed to their needs.
