Whether you’re the parent or guardian of a prospective student, a current Fordham Ram, or a grad, you’re part of our community. And there are plenty of ways for you to get involved on a deeper level.
From regional receptions to on-campus lectures, Fordham parents are invited to join us. Learn more about all our upcoming events.
Join the Parents’ Leadership Council
The Parents' Leadership Council (PLC) is a community of parent volunteers who play a leadership role at Fordham University, acting as ambassadors and supporting the University philanthropically through an annual donation. Learn more about the Parents' Leadership Council.
Partner with Career Services
Fordham parents can partner with the Office of Development and Career Services to work directly with students on professional development. This could include offering internships, mentorships, or full-time employment to students, creating shadowing opportunities, or sitting on a roundtable or panel. If you are interested, please reach out to Taylor McDonnell, assistant director of the Fordham Fund, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Be a Parent Ambassador
Fordham will be launching a parent ambassador initiative soon! Parents will have the opportunity to join a community of their peers and volunteer with the University in various ways based on their desired time commitment, geographic location, and interests. If you are interested, please reach out to Taylor McDonnell, assistant director of the Fordham Fund, at email@example.com.
