Xue "Cher" Xing (Teaching and Learning) recently published an article, "Understanding Postsecondary Education Enrollment of First-Generation Students From a Social Cognitive Perspective,"  in the Journal of Career Development. The study found postsecondary educational self-efficacy and goals, together, had a substantial positive influence on postsecondary enrollment of first- and continuing-generation students. Contextual supports and barriers directly influenced students’ goals but played different roles depending on generational status.
