TMA First-Gen: Next Gen
Notre Dame of Maryland University (NDMU) proposes First-Gen: Next Gen in response to the University’s growing population of first-generation college students and an increased need to provide holistic support for this population post-COVID in the form of robust mentoring. This mentoring system will be multi-tiered, however, expanding beyond NDMU to provide programming to juniors and seniors attending Baltimore City Public Schools in years two and three to create a stronger, more supportive pipeline to higher education. First-Gen: Next Gen will engage NDMU and Baltimore City Public School students in programming designed to 1) improve retention rates for current first-generation college students at NDMU, particularly those from underrepresented minority groups, by offering meaningful opportunities for leadership roles and leadership development; 2) increase the number of Baltimore City Public School students from underrepresented minority groups who graduate from high school and enroll in two or four-year colleges or universities post-graduation; 3) increase the number of college scholarships and financial aid offered to low-income and underrepresented minority groups in Baltimore City Public Schools; 4) lower the percentage of first-generation students who are accepted to a college or university, but never start; 5) offer robust support for the high school and NDMU freshmen cohort as they navigate the college acceptance process and their first year of college to increase their likelihood of academic success.
