First-Generation & Low-Income Student Center at Smith College

This petition had 468 supporters

About a quarter of Smith College's students have been identified as being first generation college students and 5.8% of students come from the bottom 20 percent. Brown University and the University of Chicago have prioritized the needs of their first gen and low-income students by creating centers, such as seen in Brown's First-Generation College and Low-Income Student Center. Smith's administration has repeatedly claimed that it values diversity, but has not given these students an actual space to organize for themselves in. It is time for Smith to give first-generation and low-income students a space of their own.
