Non-Discrimination and Diversity

Framingham State University provides equal access to educational, co-curricular and employment opportunities at the University for all applicants, students, and employees regardless of race, color, religion, national origin, age, disability, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, genetic information, marital or parental status, or veteran status in compliance with all applicable laws, regulations and policies.

Consistent with its commitment to non-discrimination, the University does not discriminate on the basis of sex in the education program or activity that they operate, and are required by Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (“Title IX”) to not discriminate in such a manner. The requirement not to discriminate in the education program or activity extends to admission and employment. Inquiries about the application of Title IX to the University may be referred to FSU's Title IX Coordinator, to the Assistant Secretary of the Office for Civil Rights, or both.
