Handbook for Administrators

Message from the President

As an administrator at Fordham University, you play an important role in fulfilling our mission to serve faculty, students and community in seeking to produce "men and women for others." Let me thank you for your contributions and ask you for your continued support as we work together to make Fordham's future even more glorious than its past.

Drawing on the Jesuit tradition of "cura personalis" -care of the whole person- Fordham is keenly interested in the personal and professional development of each employee. It is with this in mind that we have created this Handbook to provide you with important information about your employment at Fordham, including information on the benefits and the policies of the University. I urge you to become familiar with its contents and to keep it nearby so that it is available for future reference.

I look forward to working with you in the years to come and I hope that your association with Fordham will bring you a great sense of satisfaction and fufullment.

Joseph M. McShane, S.J.
