Mission of Global Outreach

"If you have come here to help me, you are wasting your time. But if you have come because your liberation is bound up with mine, then let us work together."
- Lila Watson 

Global Outreach (GO!) is a student-led program that facilitates service and learning immersion experiences for all members of the Fordham University community. We provide an opportunity for participants to expand their global perspective by exploring economic, social, political, and environmental injustices. GO! participants work to increase solidarity between Fordham, its students, and our partnering communities.

GO! participants seek to gain a deeper understanding of the Jesuit philosophy of cura personalis, the formation of the whole person to become knowledgeable and active citizens aspiring to work for the common good and greater social equality. GO! teams are challenged to embrace and incorporate the program’s four pillars of community, spirituality, simple living, and social justice, while fostering an ongoing commitment that embodies and promotes these values in the university, local, and global communities.
