The First-Generation and/or Lower-Income (FGLI) Program opened in 2016 at the Greenfield Intercultural Center, becuase students advocated for resources, space, and recognition. The FGLI Program continues to evolve and prides itself as a student led/student centered program to assist students with their academic, personal, and social transition needs. FGLI students belong at Penn and the FGLI program is here to support their achievement.
