About This Project
Achievement and persistence of college students with disadvantaged backgrounds (e.g., low-income, first-generation college student) still lag behind that of more advantaged peers despite widely-implemented financial/academic support programs aimed at closing the gaps. Within such a program, my dissertation will test the effectiveness and psychological mechanisms of an intervention designed to boost disadvantaged students' wellness and success by providing additional social-psychological support.
