How One Institution’s “Breakthrough Strategies” Videos are Helping First-Gen Students | Academic Impressions

The success of first-generation and at-risk students is the responsibility of an institution’s entire community, but faculty members are especially on the “front lines” when it comes to making a real impact. And Heritage University in Toppenish, WA has identified a low-cost, time-efficient way to deliver faculty development focused on how instructors can have a greater impact on student success.

Heritage University has produced a series of short videos in which faculty hear from their peers examples of pedagogical strategies that work for their first-generation and at-risk students. We reached out to Kathleen Ross, founding president emeritus and current director of the Heritage Institute for Student Identity and Success at Heritage University, to learn more about how they approached this project, the challenges they’ve faced in producing the videos, and the results they’ve received so far.
