Though it may take several weeks to fully understand the implications of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to return Fisher v. University of Texas to the lower court, for the moment it appears that Fordham’s policies will remain unchanged.
Regardless of the eventual decision, Fordham remains committed to diversity in its student body, faculty, and staff, and committed to maintaining access to higher education and fostering success for students of modest means. The University will of course act in accordance with federal and state law while maintaining its historic role in educating the sons and daughters of immigrant families.
Founded in 1841, Fordham is the Jesuit University of New York, offering exceptional education distinguished by the Jesuit tradition to more than 15,100 students in its four undergraduate colleges and its six graduate and professional schools. It has residential campuses in the Bronx and Manhattan, a campus in West Harrison, N.Y., the Louis Calder Center Biological Field Station in Armonk, N.Y., and the London Centre at Heythrop College, University of London, in the United Kingdom.
