Swarthmore FLI Council

Our Mission

We, the Swarthmore College First-Generation, Low-Income Council, ignite transformational change through resources, accountability, and a collective voice. Through mobilization around concerns surrounding the FLI experience, the Council will facilitate programs and initiatives that support FLI students. The Council believes in sustainable initiatives that create lasting, long-term structural change. Within this framework, FLI Council student leaders organize to foster community and expand resources. However, we are cognizant that this work should have been done by the College from the beginning; the College is bound by its commitment to FLI students. As the Council advocates for the College to meet the needs of FLI students with critical care, they will continue to make change on their end.
