Diversity and Inclusion Resources
Fordham University is dedicated to promoting diversity, making sure every member of the Fordham community has equal opportunities, and spreading a community-wide inclusion initiative to create a safe and inclusive environment. Here is what diversity, equity, and inclusion means to us:
Diversity - Embracing differences in the workplace that make Fordham unique, well-rounded, and representational.
Equity - Promoting practices that are impartial, fair, and provide equal opportunities to all Fordham community members.
Inclusion - Ensuring that every member of the Fordham community is included, appreciated, and feels a sense of belonging.
Mission - Fordham is committed to research and education that assist in the alleviation of poverty, the promotion of justice, and the protection of human rights.
