Strategic Planning

Educating for Justice: Fordham University’s Vision and Strategic Plan, 2021-2026

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 2020, the Board of Trustees accepted and endorsed a University-wide strategy for the period 2021-2026.

Educating for Justice sets forth an inspirational and aspirational agenda for the next five years, one that will distinguish Fordham as a university focused on teaching and research for justice.

We have crafted the plan to respond to the pressing challenges of our day including ensuring that Fordham is recognized as an outstanding Jesuit research university deeply grounded in the life and renewal of New York City, dismantling racism and other forms of discrimination and oppression, and recruiting and retaining students in an increasingly competitive environment.

To that end, our five-year goals are to:

  • Educate students as global citizens and transformative Lleaders for justice in the innovation age
  • Excel across the natural and applied sciences and allied fields to promote social change and equity
  • Cultivate a diverse, equitable, inclusive, caring, and connected community that promotes each member’s development as a whole person
