The Bernard L. Schwartz Center for Media, Public Policy and Education is devoted to studying America’s embattled newsgathering traditions and investigating solutions for their survival.
The Center for Catholic School Leadership and Faith-Based Education has been a national pioneer and leader in the research, education and service of the sacred mission of Catholic Schools.
The Center has been a catalyst for creating initiatives and forging partnerships to advance and excel at Catholic education nationally and internationally.
It counts among its alumni: principals, presidents, superintendents and other diocesan personnel around the country and, in its commitment to Catholic educational global leadership, around the world.
Adhering to the basic principles of applied research, the Center’s mission is to provide services and assistance to teachers, administrators, students, and parents, as well as to education and government agencies designed to enable all children to achieve and succeed. The Center's initiatives include:
- Community Schools Partnership Program
- Mathematics, Literacy, ELL (English Language Learners), and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) Coaching Programs
- NYS/NYC Regional Bilingual Education Resource Network
The Fordham Digital Literacies Collaborative brings together teachers who are interested in developing their own digital literacy in an effort to improve literacy instruction in K-12 schools.
Through the network of the FDLC, teachers write together, read professional texts collaboratively, share their best practices in teaching digital literacies, and conduct outreach into school communities.
The Centers serve as training facilities for graduate students who are enrolled in the School Psychology, Educational Psychology, and Counseling Programs at Fordham University. The students provide services under intensive supervision as part of their educational training.
The School Psychology Program is accredited by the American Psychological Association and the National Association of School Psychologists.
