External Announcements

The 2019 AL1GN (Alliance for the Low-Income & First- Generation Narrative) Conference, will be hosted at the University of Virginia on March 22nd, 2019 – March 24th, 2019. This year, we will address a persistent issue that impacts many FGLI students: Educational Insecurity. The risk that poverty continues to impose on these students compels their home institutions to allocate even more resources. Attrition for FGLI students is staggeringly, and unnecessarily, high. We must bring to light this issue for everyone involved: students, faculty, administrators, and community members. The conference explores systematic solutions to better support and empower this vulnerable student population.

With this year's AL1GN Conference seeking to unite 300-350 First-Generation, Low-Income (FGLI) college students, with numerous other identities and experiences, half of our attendees (~150-175) will be coming from outside of UVa and will therefore need housing accommodations.
