The West Wing: Integrated Learning Community for Ignatian Leadership and Civic Service


The West Wing: Integrated Learning Community for Ignatian Leadership and Civic Service at Fordham University strives to provide a co-curricular living-learning experience for students enrolled in both Fordham College at Rose Hill and the Gabelli School of Business. Recognizing the value of interdisciplinary study between the colleges, the West Wing will connect such topics as international affairs, government policy, public relations, ethical business practices, and effective leadership, in order to inspire well-rounded students who are confident in their abilities to affect change both at Fordham University and in the world.

The West Wing ILC is located on the 3rd floor of O’Hare Hall Residential College and is available to Sophomore and Junior students.

To be a member of the West Wing ILC, all residents will be enrolled in the West Wing ILC Course (a 1-credit class) each semester, and required to attend all West Wing events. Unless otherwise noted, events will take place in the O’Keefe Commons on Tuesday evenings between 7:00pm and 8:30pm for both the fall and spring semesters.

Unexcused absences may result in a failing grade for the course and removal from the West Wing ILC.


Efforts for this Integrated Learning Community are coordinated by:

Dr. Robert Hume: Faculty Director of the West Wing (rhume@fordham.edu)
Dean Robert Parmach: Dean's Office Liaison to the West Wing (parmach@fordham.edu)
Mr. Joshua Conway: Area Coordinator for Integrated Learning Communities (jconway28@fordham.edu)
