II. Strategically Focused Research

Building our research enterprise and raising its profile worldwide will require us to make carefully considered choices—we can’t do everything and do it well. This does not mean compromising the expansive curiosity that is our Jesuit legacy. Indeed, Fordham has great potential to leverage current strengths and build on its growing excellence in interdisciplinary scholarship and inter-professional pursuits. But continuing on this path will require us to make partnerships with other organizations the norm rather than the exception, and to be more resourceful in bringing faculty and students together at the crossroads of disciplines.

  1. Establish Fordham as a Competitive Research Institution in Strategically Defined Areas
  2. Promote Faculty-Student Research Collaboration
  3. Significantly Enhance Research Resources
