Center at FSU.

“I have chosen to make Framingham State University my current course and the final stage of my career (I am a
professor there now) after spending so many years studying innovation, because it has such a rich
history of innovation. The great American educational innovator Horace Mann developed and opened
this college to be the first college in the United States to teach teachers how to teach. It was the keystone of
establishment of the Massachusetts public education system, and it was established as the 8th college for women in the United States.
