3501 Sansom Street, Penn Law, Levy Conference Room

FGLI-G... What does it mean to be the first in your family to graduate from college and re-enroll in a graduate program? What does it mean to do this, while stemming from a background with or currently with low economic resources? What does it mean to not share these experiences but to want to be an ally or helpmate from those that do? All year long the Equity & Access committee has worked to not only address those questions.

And, while there is work to continue-- we've decided the best way to end the year is with a Dinner Party!

To give you the option to hear from others with FGLI backgrounds now in their goal careers, mix-and-mingle, enjoy a 3-course meal and live entertainment as well as have your questions addressed regarding career/life how-tos as well as university resources. If tickets or attire would hinder your ability to attend, please e-mail: or

The recommended, but not required, attire is business casual.
