The Giving Tree

The Office of Student Involvement and Leadership Development would like to thank everyone that participated  in the 2017 Giving Tree Project.  Framingham State University students, staff, and faculty provided over 180 gifts to 60 children.  We worked in partnership with the United Way of Tri-County’s Hope for the Holidays program, spreading holiday cheer and gifts to almost 2,000 children.  SILD was overjoyed to see the campus community come together to provide for the greater Metro West community this season.  Look for information next November as we will again increase our commitment to this annual event!

my.framingham 2.0 is coming

The University plans to launch a new and improved my.Framingham portal in 2018. Similar to the upgrade from Banner 8 to 9, the change to my.Framingham 2.0 will involve converting to a different underlying technology and user interface. In fact, Ellucian is the provider of Banner and the portal application software for my.Framingham.

Ellucian Portal simplifies information exchange for students, faculty, and staff by replacing handfuls of systems and sites with a single, virtual doorway.
