Mission Priority Examen

Help us shape the future of Fordham!

Every seven years, Jesuit colleges and universities undergo a thoughtful self-examination to understand how well we are living our mission. We ask the big questions about who we are and where we are headed.

Some of the key questions that guide the process are:

  1. What makes a college or university Jesuit?

  2. What does Jesuit sponsorship of a college or university mean today?

  3. How will the 28 schools of the Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities (AJCU) and our Associate Members live out their Jesuit and Catholic mission going forward?

The main reference for the schools' self-examinations and the entire MPE (Mission Priority Examen) process is a document called "Characteristics of Jesuit Higher Education: A Guide for Mission Reflection." This guide serves as the foundational framework for reflecting on the school's mission in the context of Jesuit educational principles.
