dc.description.abstract The following paper is a meta-analysis of the relevant literature surrounding first-generation/low-income student barriers to high school graduation, as well as college entrance and success. This paper details what research indicates outreach programs should provide to first-generation/low-income students to overcome such barriers and suggests what components and characteristics are important in the development of academic outreach programs to help reduce the inequality gap. Although there is abundant research surrounding first-generation/low-income student needs and what various programs provide, current research does not address the intersections of student need, successful characteristics of program partnerships, characteristics a single program should provide, and the linkages in-between. This paper examines the linkages between these variables and suggests what outreach program administrators should be cognizant of during program development in order to maximize program potential. en
