Framingham State University Receives Sixth Award for Diversity and Inclusion

NEC member Framingham State University (FSU) has received the Higher Education Excellence in Diversity Award from the magazine INSIGHT into Diversity. FSU is the only public Massachusetts college included in the 90 schools recognized with the award.

The award recognizes colleges and universities that exhibit outstanding success in the areas of diversity, equity, and inclusion. This is the sixth time FSU has received the award.

“It’s an honor to once again be recognized with a Higher Education Excellence in Diversity award,” says Dr. Constanza Cabello, FSU’s vice president of diversity, inclusion, and community engagement. “As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to disproportionately impact communities of color, our efforts to ensure that we are providing equitable opportunities to all of our students, regardless of their economic or racial background, are more important than ever.”

The New England Council congratulates Framingham State University for their decade-long success in cultivating a diverse campus community. Read more from the Worcester Business Journal.
