Title: Hidden Population: Foster Care Alumni in Higher Education
Lead Presenter: Sarah Connelly
Date: On-Demand
Room: On Demand
Abstract: As academic advisors we value inclusivity. It is imperative then to fully understand the various populations we serve. One particularly vulnerable and hidden population on college campuses is foster care alumni (i.e. youth who have aged out of the foster care system). This presentation will provide an overview of the barriers and challenges foster care alumni face in enrolling in and graduating from college. In addition, current support programs from across the U.S. will be reviewed to help inform our own practice and better serve this population.
