The Jesuit Tradition

The real strength of a Fordham education comes from a much deeper place—the five-century-old tradition of Jesuit education that infuses every part of the Fordham experience. It’s a tradition that encourages curiosity, introspection and, most importantly, action—to reach out, to settle injustice, to leave a healing mark.

This isn’t about reading books and memorizing facts: Your education is dynamic, challenging you to understand contexts as much as concepts.
