Board of Trustees
The Fordham University Board of Trustees is currently comprised of 38 members, primarily graduates of the University's various schools or members of their family, and members of the Jesuit community. The President of the University is an ex officio voting member of the Board. The Board, operating under the laws of New York State and by University Statute, is responsible for directing and managing all business and affairs of the University, and is the final authority over all other matters involving the University, including the budget and all changes in tuition and fees and salaries and benefits.
Over the past decade, current and past members of the Board have made significant contributions to Fordham, which has helped establish 14 endowed chairs, 35 endowed or current-use scholarship funds, and has helped fund the construction of new residence halls at Rose Hill and Lincoln Center, the new Law School at Lincoln Center, and the renovation of Hughes Hall.
