Mission Statement


The Office of Student Leadership and Community Development at the Rose Hill campus of Fordham University serves the University community by developing a campus environment where students are expected to complement their academic experience with a rich co-curricular life outside the classroom. Staffed by a team of dedicated Student Affairs professionals committed to the University’s Jesuit tradition, OSL&CD strives for excellence in each of our programs and services. Our program offerings include advisement of over 90 student clubs, organizations, publications, program boards, and student government. OSL&CD is also home to department-sponsored programs including: Commuter Student Services, New Student Orientation, Leadership Development programs, and the management of the McGinley Campus Center.


The staff of OSL&CD cares for the whole student and through our advisement and programs we help facilitate students' intellectual, cultural, spiritual and ethical development. Our leadership programs are designed to encourage character development and ethical leadership; leadership traits that stay with students long after they graduate from the University. OSL&CD also promotes service in its many dimensions within the Fordham community, in the neighborhoods of New York City and in the world beyond.


A list of current clubs and organizations, the club registration guidelines, and a guide to the funding of registered organizations are presented on the following pages. Additionally, this document outlines the policies and procedures for the Office of Student Leadership and Community Development.
