NRC-FAHE Webinar: Lisa Schelbe, Lisa Jackson
Campus-based support programs can promote student success. However, little is known about outcomes of students after graduation. How do students who participated in a campus-based support program fare after graduation? This presentation briefly presents the Unconquered Scholars Program at Florida State University and a study of the students after graduation. The study surveys 31 students at graduation, 6 months post-graduation, and one-year post-graduation to explore their experiences. Findings indicate that at graduation, students have post-graduation plans and are optimistic. At follow-up, graduates identified obstacles including finances and lack of support. Study findings have implications for preparing students with a history of foster care and homelessness for life after graduation.
