First-Generation College Student Experiences of Intersecting Marginalities examines the intersecting relationships between a student's identity as a first-generation college student (FGCS) and other identities such as race, class, LGBTQ+, and spiritual identity. This book breaks new ground by examining highly diverse populations of FGCS, rather than predominantly White undergraduates at four-year public universities. First-Generation College Student Experiences of Intersecting Marginalities explores the intersections of identities that may be marginalized in different ways across a student's educational journey in research-grounded chapters that discuss real academic experiences of faculty, administrators, graduate students, and undergraduates.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This book is an important contribution to more than one field of inquiry: working-class studies, student affairs, and campus diversity. The essays complicate and enrich our understanding of who the first-gen student actually is, just as first-gen students also complicate and enrich our nation's campuses. The book promises to help colleges and universities better understand first-gen students and support them in meaningful, effective ways, moving beyond discussion of `access' alone and toward retention and graduation. The book is a valuable addition to the literature driving change to make higher education both more welcoming and more responsive to the needs and aspirations of all students." -Carolyn Leste Law, Thesis/Dissertation Advisor at Northern Illinois University and coeditor of This Fine Place So Far from Home: Voices of Academics from the Working Class
