AVETH Diversity Seminar Series 2023: First-generation students and academics at Swiss Universities: how social origin shapes educational biographies and careers
AVETH Diversity invites you to a seminar on first-generation students and academics in Switzerland. In Switzerland today, the social origin, the socio-economic status, and the parents’ educational background still strongly determine children’s educational pathways and qualifications. Despite these findings, many motivated and capable First-Generation students enroll and succeed in higher education, and First-Gen academics contribute to knowledge production and transmission. Yet, many challenges in the academic context persist at different institutional levels and stages of the educational and professional pathway. The presentation gives an overview of the current situation of First-Generation students/academics in Switzerland from a perspective of society and individual life experiences.
Come join us for an insightful seminar with Stephanie Voser from University of Fribourgon the 12th October 2023 which is followed by an apéro!
Time: 17:30, 12th October 2023
