In the late spring, CDI will survey the campus on issues relating to diversity and inclusion and will present its findings to the campus community.
It is never too late to join CDI; we encourage students, faculty and staff to become members. If you have any questions about CDI, please contact Millie Gonzalez at email@example.com.
CDI has its own Twitter account. If you would like to publicize any events, activities or news related to diversity and inclusion on our campus or outside of our campus, email the information to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.

Arts and Humanities
Arts and Humanities offers a rich array of cultural programs scheduled throughout the year. These include diverse speakers, performances, art exhibitions, and a series of international films.
Campus Ministry is a service to you and for you, whatever your religious affiliation or non-affiliation. Campus Ministry respects all religious traditions on campus and offers religious services, educational programs, and volunteer service opportunities. The office also provides spiritual guidance and counseling for members of the Framingham State University community who are dealing with issues of faith or morality. Most religious services are held at the Ecumenical and Cultural Center located behind the McCarthy Center.
Campus Ministry currently has three chaplains, any one of whom is prepared to assist any student, staff or faculty member who wishes to utilize their services. Currently, Hai Ok Hwang, M. Div., and Reverend Julie Carson, M. Div. are regularly on campus serving the Roman Catholic and Protestant communities. The chaplains are also available to assist people of other denominations or religious traditions with their spiritual needs. Rabbi Yakov Lazaros is on campus weekly to minister to students of the Jewish faith. Please do not hesitate to call on them for spiritual counsel or for a referral to another faith tradition.
Catholic Chaplain: Hai Ok Hwang, M. Div.

Their goal is to help you in all aspects of your career search from the time you enter the university and through your career transitions after graduation.

The Counseling Center at Framingham State provides a range of mental health services to help students improve emotional, interpersonal, and academic functioning.
The Center provides individual, couples, and group counseling, as well as psychopharmacology assessment and management to any matriculated undergraduate or graduate student, free of charge.
Framingham State offers equal opportunities to all qualified students, including those with disabilities and impairments. Framingham State is committed to making reasonable accommodations as are necessary to ensure that its programs and activities do not discriminate, or have the effect of discriminating, on the basis of disability. Academic Support serves students with learning and psychiatric disabilities as well as students with visual, mobility, and hearing impairments.
Framingham State seeks to maintain a positive environment for faculty, staff, students, and visitors. Accordingly, we have developed policies and procedures that promote inclusion in the workplace and an environment that is free from illegal harassment and discrimination. Policies, contracts, and information on state and federal laws are available on the HR Website.
The Office of International Education directs the Study Abroad program as well as provides resources for faculty and international students.
The Office of Multicultural Affairs seeks to promote an environment that is culturally aware, supportive, and understanding. The premise of multiculturalism encourages us as a community to look beyond the mainstream and explore new cultures and ideas that are different from our own. Multicultural Affairs provides programming and opportunities to do that.
