The Jesuit tradition is characterized by excellence in teaching, care and development of each student, and commitment to the promotion of an ethical society . These tenets inform every aspect of a Fordham education. Social innovation and a commitment to social causes is woven throughout all 10 schools through curricular, co-curricular and extra curricular activities.
