Bucknell University Engages First-Generation Students & Sees Increases in Academic Performance


In 2019, the Bucknell University's College of Arts & Sciences (CAS) set up a task force to look at why students chose to leave the university. The institution’s largest student body – 63 percent of enrolled students – had the lowest retention. Exiting students generally fell into two groups: those who did not feel like they fit in socially and those who felt they did not fit in academically. This was felt acutely for historically underserved student populations and first-generation students. With Mentor Collective, Bucknell established a peer support network with mentorship and had a positive impact on first-generation student outcomes.
