Examining the Funds of Knowledge of First Generation Latino/a College Advisers
This study strives to answer the question of how do first-generation, Latino/a college advisers from low-socioeconomic backgrounds use their funds of knowledge in their practice. In other words, it is an investigation on how professional knowledge and personal knowledge interact with each other in their profession. Through the use of research regarding Funds of Knowledge, Intersectionality, W.E.B Du Bois? Double Consciousness and Victor Frankl?s Logotherapy, I seek to understand how these two very different funds of knowledge clash within this unique group of people who are returning to the communities they once left in the pursuit for a better life through education.
