Coordinated by the Loeb Center & Office of Campus Diversity & Student Leadership, the Next Gen Leadership Institute is an interterm program designed for first-generation and/or low-income students to cultivate and highlight existing social and cultural capital in their personal and professional lives. We hope to create an affirming space where students can acquire and integrate transferable skills that prepare them for their future and create a culture of peer support and knowledge-sharing.
