Fr. Ryan’s goal as the McGinley Professor of Religion and Society is to foster an understanding of the common ground among Christianity, Judaism, and Islam. His ultimate aim is to establish a Trialogue among these three faith traditions.

Fordham President Rev. Joseph McShane, S.J. called Fr. Ryan’s appointment as the McGinley Professor, “a new phase in the history of the McGinley Chair.”
