Framingham State University was founded in 1839 for a singular
purpose - meeting a public need to promote the public good. At our
founding as the nation's first public normal school, that need was
for comprehensively educated public school teachers who would, in
turn, promote an educated citizenry. FSU continues to offer
exceptional teacher education programs and, while we are proud of
our roots as a teachers' college, we have grown far beyond them.
Public need continues to evolve and FSU right along with it. Our
students and alumni are making waves in the fashion industry,
designing nutrition plans for professional athletes, writing for
major media and news organizations, and working for Fortune 500
companies right here in Framingham. FSU is unapologetically a
public institution offering accessible, affordable educational
opportunities that integrate an academically challenging liberal
arts education with workforce preparation programs, in a highly
personalized teaching environment. Our programs have expanded but
our purpose and commitment to public education for the public good
At FSU, we are deeply committed to inclusive excellence and
strive to promote a culture of antiracism, encouraging a
challenging yet collaborative learning environment, and providing
culturally relevant education. FSU is designated as an emerging

Colleges and Universities and also belongs to the Howard Hughes
Medical Institute (HHMI) Inclusive Excellence community, providing
national leadership in science education and exploring strategies
that will lead to more inclusive science education. We are honored
that our commitment earned FSU six Higher Education Excellence in
Diversity (HEED) Awards from INSIGHT Into Diversity. We encourage
applications from those who share our commitment to promoting a
diverse, welcoming, and inclusive community.

Our founding motto, LIVE TO THE TRUTH, was said at the end of
each class by beloved first principal, Cyrus Peirce, who sought to
discover and teach "truth in theory and principle...truth in spirit
and motive...truth in manner and form...truth intellectual and
truth moral." Early leaders found this motto "speaks of sincerity
of spirit...of intensity of effort, of resolution to succeed, of
joy in achievement." LIVE TO THE TRUTH aptly reflects our past and
our pledge for the future as it continues to guide our institution
in practice and endeavor. If you share in this quest for truth and
a commitment to living it fully, make the next chapter of your
career the best chapter at Framingham State University.
