Dear FSU Community,
Welcome to the Framingham State University Multicultural Affairs Web site. 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. As the director, it is my responsibility to provide programming and opportunities to do that.
There are many opportunities to support the mission of this office. This can be accomplished by attending any of the numerous events sponsored by Multicultural Affairs, or joining a club such as the Black Student Union, Amigos, 10% Alliance, to name a few. For more information regarding clubs please check the Student Involvement and Leadership Development Web site. In addition, first year students can enroll in the mentor program, Relevant Advice & Mentoring for Multicultural Students (RAM2S). You can enroll as a protege (first year students only) or apply to be mentor (sophomore students and above only).
I hope you enjoy exploring the Framingham State University Web site. I look forward to meeting you at an event, through the RAM2S program, or stopping by my office. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me. Please join the office fan page on Facebook™ by searching FSU Office of Multicultural Affairs.
David N. Baldwin
Assistant Dean of Students/Director of Multicultural Affairs
