Fordham University is a partner in United Nations Academic Impact, a global initiative that connects the UN with universities to pursue and sustain ten principles. Each year, Fordham must actively demonstrate its support for at least one of these principles.

Fordham offers students unique opportunities at the UN through its Impact Initiative, internships, and briefings, including special events like International Peace Day, UN Day, MDG Week, International Education Week, and UN Department of Public Information Programs.
