Coming Soon

The center will undertake a project beginning in Fall 2020 to review and post online resources for families and educators. We aim to offer a curated list of culturally responsive, evidence-based, reliable sources of information to help you in your efforts to support all learners. If you have an online resource to recommend, please contact us at

A long-term goal is also to provide a library of physical resources (books, curriculum materials, and equipment) for use on campus and to be borrowed for off-campus use. If you have books and resources that you would like to donate to the center, please contact us at


The center's mission will include opportunities for faculty members to propose and conduct research in partnership with educators and families in the region. Please see below for recent research conducted at Framingham State University with relevance to the center.
