FSU Diversity & Inclusion Commitment

Framingham State University is committed to diversity in a variety of areas: faculty/staff, the student body, and the curriculum. Diversity is a broad concept, and we are engaged in supporting it as it relates to racial/ethnic identity, nationality, sexual orientation, gender, religion, physical ability, teaching style, learning style, and political philosophy.

At Framingham State we believe that diversity among faculty, staff, the student body, and curriculum, will contribute to our community's understanding of the multicultural world and will enhance the quality of the learning experience on campus. It is widely recognized that a diverse academic and work setting will enrich teaching and research and will promote creativity, productivity, and innovation.

For FSU diversity-related events or for any additional information, please see the FSU Diversity webpage.
