Board of Trustees Chair Kevin Foley

Dear FSU Community:

Yesterday marked the final step in the appointment process of Dr. Nancy Niemi to serve as the next president of Framingham State University beginning in July of this year.  At yesterday's Board of Higher Education meeting, the group unanimously and enthusiastically approved Dr. Niemi's appointment that had been previously recommended in December by the Framingham State University Board of Trustees.

I want to take a final opportunity to thank everyone who actively participated in the search process over the past nine months.  From the Presidential Search Committee to each and every FSU community member who participated in any aspect of the finalist visit process – your time and efforts are appreciated and informed the decision of the Board of Trustees that led to this appointment.

On behalf of the Board – thank you!


Kevin Foley '84
