Bothered excellence—an exuberant restlessness of mind and soul, both Fordham’s distinctive advantage and our gift to the world.

A Plan to Implement Fordham's Strategic Priorities
At Fordham, strategic planning is an integrated enterprise. Both the University as a whole and each of its schools and divisions are working on exciting initiatives that meld our Jesuit mission and identity with the needs of the contemporary moment. In 2019, the Board of Trustees accepted and endorsed a University-wide strategy for the period 2020-2025.
Advancing Bothered Excellence orients Fordham toward innovative forms of education, both inside and outside the classroom, accentuates our work in the sciences and associated fields, facilitates the work we do alongside our local communities, and enables us better to share with the world what makes Fordham distinctive.
The goals in Advancing Bothered Excellence emerge out of the six priorities of the University Strategic Framework, which Fordham adopted in 2016 and which continues to guide our planning today. We invite you to explore how the University and all of its constituent areas are working together to achieve a new standard of excellence.
