welcome! On behalf of the 1vyG planning team and the Princeton FLI community, we are delighted and honored to welcome you to the 5th annual 1vyG conference. The 2019 conference theme is: From Moment to Movement: Capitalizing on Our FLI Experiences to Become Agents of Change in Our Communities. This weekend we will be exploring our unique FLI identities together, in a series of workshops, panels, and discussions that will take us through the three communities where our FLI identity is challenged the most: our campuses, hometowns, and professional spaces. In addition to the programming, we hope you get the chance to embrace the special space and comradery that comes with being in such a FLI-concentrated space as 1vyG. You are in a space of shared struggle, comprised of students from all parts of the country and from differents walks of life. We would like to thank each of you for attending our conference and bringing your experiences to our gathering. You have the vision, the knowledge, and the wherewithal to help pave the way for FLI success. Throughout this conference, I ask you to stay engaged and keep us proactive. Our personal respect and thanks goes out to all of you. 1vyG Hotline . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Knowledge is Power: Learning, Connecting and Sharing with FLI Students Location: FRIST MPR (B LEVEL) Facilitated by Kris Harvey, Founder and Executive Director of FirstGenerationCollegeStudents.org Navigating the information available for FLI students and admins can be overwhelming. This workshop explores and demystifies online resources that bring FLI resources. We’ll be parsing through links to social media accounts of prominent FLI student groups across the U.S. to make it simple for students to find others just like them, as well as looking at the kinds of services other colleges offer their students, so FLI advocates can see how their colleges’ programs and services compare to those of similar schools.
