FGLI Consortium Administrator Conference proposal Form
Please join us for our 2nd Annual FGLI (First-Generation, Lower-Income) Consortium Administrator Conference, to be held at Princeton University from February 17-19. The FGLI (First-Generation, Lower-Income) Consortium Administrator Conference brings together a community of faculty and administrators to collectively address complex issues impacting FGLI students across higher education. For two and half days, attendees will hear from inspirational speakers, think radically about transformational change, and share knowledge to help FGLI students thrive at highly selective colleges and universities. Administrators and faculty working with and advocating for first-generation and/or lower-income college students at highly selective institutions are encouraged to attend.
We hope that many of the faculty and administrators who attend the 1vyG Conference (student-focused) held immediately preceding the FGLI Consortium Administrator Conference will be able to travel to remain at Princeton for two additional days of staff-focused conversations and workshops.
CONFERENCE THEME AND TRACKS
The theme for the conference this year will be "The Identities We Hold - Centering Intersectionality to Support FGLI Students Through and For Institutional Change.”
The FGLI Consortium seeks conference proposals focused on the following themes:
Collaboration for Institutional Change (Policy and program changes, advocacy, new initiatives, campus partnerships)

FORMAT OPTIONS OF PROPOSALS/WORKSHOPS
60-minute Workshop: Should include at least 30 minutes for activity, discussion, or hands-on work.
5 to 7-minute "Igniter Talk": These short talks provide an opportunity for presenters to share an emerging initiative or idea, talk through a tricky challenge or question, or outline a motivating case study that speaks to larger policy or programming issue. These short talks will be given in succession during the afternoon on Monday, February 18. At the conclusion of these talks, the Igniter Speakers will facilitate break-out discussions at individual tables so that conference attendees can join the speakers at their tables and follow up with targeted conversation on the talk topics.
