We’ve been working really hard to refine and bring together these overarching principles. They are the result of some great contributions from practitioners given through feedback and workshop activities across the country.
The 7 Overarching Principles are:
PRINCIPLE 1: Changing conversations: Engage with family and community.
PRINCIPLE 2: Take the mystery out of university
PRINCIPLE 3: Make no assumptions
PRINCIPLE 4: Build a sense of community
PRINCIPLE 5: Adopt a strengths-based approach
PRINCIPLE 6: Model authenticity: draw on first-in-family student experience
PRINCIPLE 7: Institutions: commit to resources and policy
