We continue to engage with our FGLI community in ways that are creating a deeper understanding of how we as a group can provide meaningful support.  

One of the big gaps between first-gen/low-income students and their non-FGLI peers is the access to connections that help them navigate the process for finding jobs and internships. You can help us narrow that gap by becoming a champion for students during their search.
