Council on Diversity and Inclusion

About CDI

Framingham State University is committed to diversity in a variety of areas: faculty/staff, the student body, and the curriculum.  Diversity is a broad concept, and we are especially engaged in supporting it as it relates to racial/ethnic identity, nationality, sexual orientation, gender, religion, physical ability, teaching style, learning style, and political philosophy.

At Framingham State we believe that diversity among faculty, staff, the student body, and curriculum, will contribute to our community's understanding of the multicultural world and will enhance the quality of the learning experience on campus.  It is widely recognized that a diverse academic and work setting will enrich teaching and research and will promote creativity, productivity, and innovation.

Meetings: CDI meets at regular times throughout the academic year.

Grants and Co-Sponsorship: The CDI also provides grants and co-sponsorships for diversity related events and activities. See the funding form for more information (link on left). 

Get Involved: Students, faculty and staff are encouraged to become CDI members. Please contact the CDI co-chairs at CDIchairs,, for details.
