Student Enrichment Services (SES)

Calling all First Generation, Lower-Income, and/or Undocumented/DACA Students

What is SES?

SES partners with FGLI students – pronounced figly – who are first-generation, lower-income, and/or DACA/Undocumented. SES works with these students to foster identity development, navigate campus resources, and build community. Through campus-wide partnerships and advocacy, SES strives to build an inclusive Northwestern community that is welcoming, supportive, and accessible for all students.

Who's First?
