I’M FIRST Student Organization

Staying connected to others is really important, who you know is often more important than how qualified you are. – Madi Uraih ’18

This student organization enhances student success by cultivating a sense of belonging, inclusion, encouragement, and resilience among first-generation and/or limited-income students.

Who We Are

  • First-Generation students are typically from families whose parents, guardians and/or custodial family members have not earned a four-year college degree
  • Limited-income students are those with little to no expected family contribution to the cost of education or limited financial means
  • FLI students are first-generation, limited-income, or both
  • FLI Friends are not first-generation and limited-income
  • FLI Graduates are faculty or staff that attended and graduated from college as a first-generation and/or limited-income student
