Brown University UFLi

2019 First-Generation College Celebration

The Undocumented, First-Generation College, and Low-Income Student Center at Brown University is hosting a two-part event:

2019 Faculty Engagement Program on November 8, 2019 from 12pm-1pm

The U-FLi Center is collaborating with the Sheridan Center for Teaching and Learning to bring together a group of faculty who are united in their commitment to work with U-FLi students. The discussion will be centered around how faculty can better integrate U-FLi issues into their classroom teaching practices as well as how they can make a more conscious effort to advise U-FLi students during the duration of their time at Brown. The goal is for faculty to leave with a better understanding of what U-FLi issues are and how they can take steps to support U-FLi identifying students in their respective work.

Student Engagement Event: Thriving as U-FLi: A Healing Experience

The U-FLi Center is collaborating with two student organizations ([email protected] and Project LETS for a discussion where we’ll collectively explore what it means to thrive as U-FLI & neurodivergent students. For the first part, students will facilitate a conversation over lunch with current undergraduate students and Peer Mental Health Advocates (PMHAs) about what thriving looks like for them and their communities. Directly following the panel, students will have the opportunity to interact with a series of self-care stations to begin practicing healing as a form of thriving. The stations will include: Guided Meditation, Stress Ball Making, Movie Watching, Face Masks, Snack Pack Making and more!
