The Stanford First-generation and/or Low-income Alumni Network (FLAN) invites you to an educational webinar facilitated by Jennifer Telschow ('13 and FLAN Co-President). Jennifer is a trained therapist and her presentation will be informed by her academic research, her professional experience supporting first-generation and/or low-income (FLI) students, and her lived experiences as a FLI student. Webinar description below:

"College students from low-income backgrounds, many of whom also identify as first-generation college students, face unique challenges that can hinder college success and completion. What role does classism play in the mental health of low-income college students? We will focus on the social class aspect of the college student identity, first by reviewing Liu's (2013) Social Class and Classism Consciousness Model, then by reviewing a framework for understanding classism as trauma."
