You may ask what makes Fordham special? Its faculty and students? Its attention to individuals? Its international reputation and network? Its situation here in New York at the world’s crossroads? Actually, all of the above.
Fordham University has long understood its distinctive mark to be its Catholic and Jesuit identity that binds these rich resources together through Mission and Ministry; which deeply influence all that goes on both inside and outside the classroom as an all-encompassing learning experience and value-laden education.
Complementing the work of other university departments are the ministries of our three main offices: Campus Ministry, Dorothy Day Center for Service and Justice and Global Outreach. Often called “the heart and soul” of Fordham, the work of these offices is bound to touch the lives of students here at Fordham – both during their college years as well as for the rest of their lives in service as “men and women for others.”
