Council on Diversity and Inclusion


The Council on Diversity and Inclusion promotes a campus environment where all Framingham State University students, staff, librarians, faculty, and administration feel valued and respected. As an organization focused on our community, we seek to support diversity and inclusion through equity and social justice within our policies, curriculum, events, and interactions.


The CDI meets at regular times throughout the academic year. As an all-campus organization, we will never be able to schedule meetings that do not conflict with any other events. However, we try to schedule meetings at a variety of times so that it is more likely that everyone can attend at least one meeting.

With that understanding, below is the Spring 2023 meeting schedule. Our meetings will once again be via Zoom for increased accessibility. Links will be shared before each meeting date.

  • Monday January 23, 1:30p 
  • Wednesday February 22, 1:30p
  • Friday March 24, 12:00p
  • Wednesday April 26, 1:30p

Meeting minutes and dates will continue to be posted on the CDI’s RamLink page
