Diversity Action Plan Implementation

The University is moving forward on multiple fronts in pursuit of greater diversity, equity, and inclusion with work happening at every level--from individual departmental to schools to university-wide. 

Spring 2021 Diversity Action Plan Implementation Update

The University continues to move forward in pursuit of greater diversity, equity, and inclusion. Spring 2021 highlights include events combating anti-Asian violence, identity-based graduation celebrations, significant increases in the diversity of the incoming fall class, several new senior leaders of color, and a new internship program to partner with our local community and aid in the city's post-COVID recovery.

Establishing the Mission and Social Justice Committee

To signal its deep commitment to the work of confronting racism and educating for justice, during the summer of 2020, the Board of Trustees created a new standing committee: the Mission and Social Justice Committee. The Committee has identified a series of goals to guide their work:

  • Increasing the number of Black and other students of color at Fordham
  • Ensuring that Black and other students of color know that they are welcome at Fordham
  • Measuring the effectiveness of these actions
