About Us

Welcome to the Office of Inclusive Excellence and Community Engagement. At Framingham State University, we believe that striving for excellence in institutional diversity and inclusion efforts requires a high quality, comprehensive approach for achieving an inclusive and welcoming campus and community. It means attending to both the demographic diversity of the institution and also to the need to foster climates and cultures that provide every student and member of the campus and community with the opportunity to thrive and succeed. We believe that achieving inclusive excellence is both critical to and a condition of institutional excellence.
