Student Report Partners and Producers
Dr. Jessica Rowland Williams

Director of Every Learner Everywhere

Dr. Nita Mosby Tyler

Chief Catalyst and Founder of The Equity Project, LLC

We selected 25 students to serve as Students Ambassadors and represent 102 students from the 2020 First Gen Leadership Class. These extraordinary student leaders, representing colleges and universities from around the country were invited to engage their own peers in answering key questions about their experiences in today’s virtual/remote learning environments. Each Ambassador was challenged to get at least 10 of their peers to complete a survey that explored the lived experiences of students during this complex time in history. 


You can read their personal stories by clicking on the pictures below and learn more about our two reports: Students Speak Report, produced with Every Learner Everywhere and The Equity Project, giving voice to students during the pandemic and online learning, and Student Peer-to-Peer Report, the second Student Speak Report, with wider student input.
