    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. 



Empower a strong community of first-generation and/or low-income alumni in contributing to our advancement, maintaining 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.

We support and celebrate the Stanford first-generation and/or low-income (FLI) community by cultivating relationships within the greater Stanford community, inspiring volunteerism, advocating for representation of the FLI identity, and providing educational and enriching activities that connect and stimulate the Stanford FLI alumni base.

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.
