VISION, MISSION STATEMENT, & VALUES

Vision: 
Empower a strong community of first-generation and/or low-income alumni in contributing to our advancement, establishing a respected voice on Stanford’s campus, and leveraging our experiences to enable us to thrive in any environment and leave a legacy of which we can be proud.

Mission: 
We connect, inspire, support, advocate for and celebrate all first-generation and/or low-income (FLI) alumni while cultivating substantive relationships within the Stanford community and highlighting the experiences, perspectives, and achievements of Stanford FLI alumni.

Values:
Belonging – We hold dear the sense of belonging that exists within the Stanford FLAN community. Stanford was so different from where many of us grew up that finding a connection with each other in this diverse community is integral to our well-being.

Accessibility – We ensure this group is accessible to each and every person that identifies with, advocates for, or falls under the umbrella of the first-generation and/or low-income community at Stanford.

Perseverance – We highlight and celebrate the perseverance, strength, and resilience in our alumni and inspire future generations to have these qualities and show them they can be successful.

Impact – We strive to be impactful and make a positive difference in the lives of first-generation and/or low-income (FLI) alumni, future FLI generations and Stanford itself.

Synergy – We exhibit strength as a group in many more ways than we are able to by ourselves.

Growth – We encourage the continued growth of the group, individuals, students, and alumni in their personal, educational and professional lives.
