VI. A Strategic and Agile Institution
Higher education, like every other enterprise in our society, faces new levels of skepticism and scrutiny and growing calls for accountability and transparency. While Fordham does not have to answer to a legislature in the way that many of our public sector peers do, we must prove on daily basis that we possess keen foresight and that we are good stewards of our families’ and donors’ hopes and expectations. Finding new efficiencies, diversifying revenue sources, and expanding our philanthropic circle are all within our reach—if we embrace a culture of innovation, entrepreneurship and thoughtful risk-taking.
