The Penn community is invited to attend the grand opening celebration of the Greenfield Intercultural Center’s (GIC) new First-Generation, Low-Income (FGLI) Program. Penn First, GIC and the Vice Provost for University Life will gather on Thursday, October 27 from 5 to 7 p.m. to celebrate the FGLI Program. This event will include tours, live music and a ribbon cutting by Provost Vincent Price. The FGLI Program provides a supportive and inclusive learning environment for scholars from low-income backgrounds who are the first in their families to attend college. The FGLI Program also welcomes all students who identify as first-generation for any of the multitude of ways this identity can be defined contextually. The program works in collaboration with Penn First, a student organization that strives to be a community and support network for students who identify as first-generation college students and/or come from low-socioeconomic backgrounds (Almanac February 2, 2016).
The celebration will be held at the Greenfield Intercultural Center at 3708 Chestnut Street. Click to RSVP.
