GSAS Dean's Leadership Committee

Mission

Fordham’s Graduate School of Arts and Sciences (GSAS) fosters the cultivation of knowledge, wisdom, and a deeper understanding of the human condition. Guided by its Jesuit traditions, we aspire to prepare students for teaching and leadership in a global society, by welcoming learners from diverse religious, economic, and cultural backgrounds into full participation in the scholarly endeavor.

Dean’s Leadership Committee

The Dean’s Leadership Committee (DLC) was established to help advance the GSAS mission. The Committee comprises alumni leaders, parents, and friends. Invitation to serve on the DLC recognizes an individual’s support of GSAS’s commitment to challenge students to fulfill their scholarly potential and prepare them to advance knowledge through their research, transmit it through their teaching, and deploy it productively in their contributions to society.

DLC members serve as advisers to the GSAS Dean and as advocates and ambassadors for the University. Through participation at annual meetings, selected activities and programming throughout the year, and philanthropic support, committee members demonstrate their volunteer leadership on behalf of GSAS and Arts and Sciences at Fordham.
