Our Core Values
Our GLUE are the core values that holds FLi Sci together.
As an organization whose mission is to remove barriers from entering science, it is fundamental that we embody values that do not add barriers. It is for this purpose that FLi Sci strives to be as inclusive when it comes to any programming rather than exclusive; we do not aim to support only a subset of FLi students (e.g., academically high-achieving students, students at competitive, well-resourced high schools, etc.).
To ensure that we can forge a world where income is not a prerequisite to entering science, we plan for any staff, ally, or student within FLi Sci to channel the following core values:
We are not seeking students are already great scientists, but students who want to become great scientists
Love of Learning
We value those who are curious and passionte to discover more than your grades or test scores
We want to support students who do not have access to rigorous STEM opportunities
We want to encourage students to feel empowered by their background, not burdened by it
