Fordham University            The Jesuit University of New York


Renewing Mission Awareness

       During the 2013-14 academic year, the Office of Mission & Ministry is advancing a process of highlighting and underscoring anew Fordham University’s mission statement with the entire Fordham community. The objective of our communications is to reinvigorate the Fordham family of students, staff, administrators and faculty with the powerful and life-giving message that Fordham’s history, heritage and hopes are rooted in its proud Jesuit and Catholic idenity. This core idenity of Fordham fosters an insatiable desire to question, debate and discern that which is good and also to help lead and serve those in need. Moreover, it reminds us again and again that being men and women for others is not merely empty words, but is a chosen way of life necessary for society’s survival.

       It is hoped that the efforts to direct new attention to Fordham’s mission statement will energize and further deepen our shared efforts in the ongoing discovery of wisdom and the transmission of learning through research and education of the highest quality. Guided by its Catholic and Jesuit traditions, Fordham is called to continuously foster the intellectual, moral and religious development of its students as it prepares them for leadership in a global society.

      The restlessness to do better and move beyond our comfort zones in order to seek superior ways of living life and serving others with purpose and passion is what sets us apart and provides such a unique image of what truly is Fordham University.

      Throughout this entire academic year, let us take our beliefs, strengths and passions to new and more vigorous heights through communally Living the Mission!
