Our university partners in the Lumina Project 2025 designed a cultural consciousness in the classroom training series to promote college readiness, enrollment and persistence efforts for low-income students from historically underrepresented groups including first generation students. Diversity training for key faculty is being initiated using a “train the trainer” model in order to enhance and increase the cultural consciousness and competency for those instructing such students especially GEP instructors and existing faculty. Join us in helping increase the retention rates and academic success of our first generation, Pell Grant eligible students from historically underrepresented groups by developing your awareness, knowledge and skills in our “Cultural Consciousness in the Classroom” professional development session. This will be the fourth and final session of the 2016-2017 academic year. Each session averages 17 faculty participants.
