Campus Ministry
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 two chaplains, who are prepared to assist any student, staff or faculty member who wishes to utilize their services. Currently, Hai Ok Hwang, M. Div. is regularly on campus serving the Christian community and any other religious denomination. Rabbi Lazaros is available to counsel our Jewish students on a weekly basis.

Please do not hesitate to call on them for spiritual counsel or for a referral to another faith tradition.

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.  Check out the Students and Alumni section which offers resources for students with disabilities, resources for veterans, and LGBT considerations. 

Counseling Center
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.

Disability Services
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.

Human Resources
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.

International Education
The Office of International Education directs the Study Abroad program as well as provides resources for faculty and international students.

Multicultural Affairs
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.
