Episode 100: The Creative Potential of Our First-Gen Students

Dr. La’Tonya “LT” Rease Miles is an expert on the first-generation college experience. Being a first-gen college graduate and a former stop-out student herself, she is now the Director of University Partnerships at ReUp Education, a company founded in 2015 to help colleges reconnect with the long-overlooked population of stopped-out students through a mix of technology and human coaches. In this episode, Genein and La’Tonya chat about the creative potential of first-get students, what the hidden curriculum is, what the strength-based approach is, and why it is beneficial to be sensitive to intrapersonal skills.
