Strong ties between university, United Way


Susanne Conley, Framingham State University’s  vice president of enrollment and student development, has been named chairwoman of the United Way of Tri-County’s  board of directors after serving on the board for five years. The nonprofit is one of the leading community-building organizations in the region, university officials said. The university has partnered with United Way over the past few years, due in large part to Conley’s involvement with the organization, officials said. The partnership includes “Saturdays of Service,” during which Framingham State students and staff members will work with local agencies on service projects, and “Days of Caring,” with volunteers providing such services as raking leaves for elderly residents, preparing meals for developmentally disabled adults, and organizing activities for families at homeless shelters. Several students also intern with the United Way organization each semester, the school said.
