FLI Shim Mirror

The shim mirror reflects the physical image and the intangible qualities and values the FLI community brings to the university. It symbolizes the unique and diverse backgrounds, each shard of the mirror representing a different facet of their journey. It represents the hopes and dreams they carry, not only for themselves but also for their families and communities and the opportunities that higher education provides.
