United Nations and Fordham University
UNDPI – NGO
In December 2012 Fordham University became an NGO associated with the United Nations Department of Public Information. As an NGO associated with UNDPI, the Fordham community has access to the weekly briefings sponsored by DPI. Fordham students are able to apply for internships to represent associated NGOs in these briefings.
Fordham University is a partner in United Nations Academic Impact, a global initiative that connects the UN with universities to pursue and sustain ten principles. Each year Fordham must actively demonstrate its support for at least one of these principles. Fordham offers students unique opportunities at the UN through its Impact Initiative.
