IV. A Global Perspective
Fordham has always been actively engaged in the world. We have campuses on three continents. Nationally, only about 14 percent of students study abroad; at Fordham, 36 percent of undergraduates take advantage of our 125 study abroad programs in 52 countries. Four thousand Fordham students engage in community service around the globe every year. But as impressive as these and other efforts are, we need to ensure that they add up to something greater. Through better coordination and integration of our global efforts and by more effectively leveraging the network of Jesuit colleges and universities in 112 countries, we can offer all our students the best possible preparation for becoming mindful, caring citizens of the world.
