Partner with FSU

Framingham State University (FSU) takes great pride in its history of educating teachers.  We continue to follow our first mission from 1839 as an institution that trains teachers.  As part of this mission, we believe in our responsibility to contribute to the lifelong learning opportunities for current teachers.  This focus is at the heart of our professional development programs, both those offered by the university and those offered through partnerships between the university and school districts across the commonwealth.


Partnership in Educational Professionalism (PEP) is a program designed to provide schools and educational organizations with the opportunity to offer professional development courses for Framingham State University credit. We look forward to increasing our collaborations for the benefit of teachers and the children they serve.


Partnership Overview—Organizations seeking approval for graduate credit courses must meet the following criteria by submitting documentation in three basic areas: organizational approval, course approval, and instructor approval.  To get priority review status, all documentation should be submitted together in one package at least 45 days prior to the first class meeting.
