Enhance the educational experience by providing faculty, administrators, and staff with ongoing professional development consistent with Fordham’s mission as a Jesuit research university
Fordham’s commitment to offer contemporary education rooted in Ignatian pedagogy demands that we invest in the formation of our most valuable resources—our dedicated faculty, administrators, and staff. A new center will equip those who teach with tools to connect with diverse students whose learning modes are hands-on, problem-driven, inherently multidisciplinary, and team oriented. Honoring the intellectual curiosity of our faculty, we will better support investigators as they conduct research that helps shape more equitable and inclusive societies. A suite of professional development programs tailored to the needs of all categories of employees will help the University live out more holistically our mission and commitment to education for justice.
- Support pedagogy by establishing a center for multi-modal teaching, learning, and educational innovation with distinctive attention to Ignatian, relational, community-based, and justice-oriented approaches
- Enhance programs to better enable faculty members to compete successfully for government, foundation, and corporate funding, especially for high-impact research advancing racial, economic, and social justice
- Provide ample programs for mission-inspired professional development for all employees, particularly in order to develop employees’ capacity to discern and disrupt racism and other forms of oppression
