FLIP Core Applications

Thank you for considering applying to be on FLIP Core for the 2012-2013 academic year.

The First Generation, Low Income Partnership (FLIP) is a relatively new student organization dedicated to supporting Stanford students who are the first in their families to attend college and/or who come from low income backgrounds. Part of what we do is create safe spaces to discuss issues relevant to our community in order to combat the stigma we might face, promote discussion of socioeconomic class and education access, and advocate for resources. We work closely with Tommy Woon, the recently-hired Associate Dean and Director of Diversity and First Generation Programs, in supporting this mission.

Two positions are open-- Sib Community Coordinator and Internal Community Coordinator. Note that the application is divided into two sections: general questions required of all applicants, and questions specific to the different positions. However, if you check the box to be considered for all positions, you do not need to fill out any of the position-specific questions.

The application is due Friday, April 20th, 2012 5 pm. There will be a 2-hour Core retreat to be scheduled that will welcome and begin the transitioning process for the new Core. Shadowing of current Core officers will happen throughout Spring Quarter. Please include in your application whether either of these things present a conflict for you.

Please direct any questions to current Co-Presidents Lena Sweeney at lenas@stanford.edu or Najla Gomez at najlag@stanford.edu. You do not need to be first gen or low income to serve on Core, all that is required is a commitment to FLIP's mission and values.

Best,
FLIP Core

    Sib Program Coordinator

    The Sib Program Coordinator is responsible for the management of the Big Sib/Lil Sib Program. Together, they are responsible for beginning preparations for the program this Summer, sending out the Sib application before school starts in the Fall, matching Sib pairs, and hosting a sufficient number of quality events throughout the school year to make sure the Sib families get to know each other. This position is extremely important because of the program's potential to develop a Stanford FLIP community and bring a diversity of students together.
