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 second and third year 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 staff consists of two resident directors, 13 resident assistants and two Jesuits-in-residence. These staff members encourage all students to share in the goals of living in a residential college and of a Jesuit education.
