Jesuit education in the classroom

Fordham provides courses in ethical, economic, and scientific principles that challenges and offers our students an opportunity to engage in environmental education and research. Sustainability is brought to life in the classroom and students are encouraged to explore through a variety of lenses the impact that environmental degradation is having on our planet and the human family.

As a Jesuit institution of higher learning our faculty challenges our students to be transformed and empowered by their education. Fordham students are encouraged to manage and promote enterprises that are profitable and socially and environmentally responsible.
