Dear Stanford Community,

We are pleased to announce that the First Generation and/or Low Income Student Success Center, formerly known as the FLI Office, will be joining the Centers for Equity, Community, and Leadership, which consists of the Asian American Activities Center, Black Community Services Center, El Centro Chicano y Latino, Native American Cultural Center, Markaz Resource Center, Queer Student Resources, and the Women’s Community Center. After having worked closely together for the past five years, we engaged in a collective process to better align the Centers and to reflect the  intersectional nature of the work of each of these esteemed departments. We are looking forward to continuing to provide the Stanford community with exceptional resources and leadership as it relates to belonging, flourishing, excellence, community, equity, and justice.

Best regards,

The Centers for Equity, Community, and Leadership
