About Brown's FLi Center

First-Generation College and Low-Income Student Center

The First-Generation College and Low-Income Student Center (FLi Center) is a communal, academic, and social space for members of the Brown community who identify with the first-generation college and/or low-income student experience. By providing students, faculty, and staff with a dedicated space that affirms their intersectional identities, the FLi Center aims to contribute to the endurance and success of the first-generation college and low-income communities at Brown. We aim to center the narratives of all people who identify with any aspect of this experience, including international, undocumented and DACA, transfer, and graduate and medical students.

The FLi Center serves as an umbrella and hub of initiatives and programs and serves as a home-base for affiliated student organizations, including First-Gens@Brown, the Brown Immigrant Rights Coalition, the Sidney Frank Scholars Association, QuestBridge Scholars at Brown, the Gates Millenium Scholars at Brown, and the Bonner Community Fellows (a program of the Swearer Center).
