About

Fordham University’s mission statement emphasizes our educational model that prepares our “students for leadership in a global society.” One way the University has approached this mission is through the Global Outreach program. Global Outreach is Fordham University’s longstanding cultural and community engaged learning immersion program. 

Beginning in 1962 with “The Mexico Project,” we began our global discourse with a faith that does justice, with 27 Fordham students spending July and August in Mexico City, doing varying forms of service engagement. 

Over the course of the next decade, Fordham continued this project, sending a delegation to Mexico City every summer. This project became so popular that the students added in “The Peru Project”, shortly thereafter. 

In 1988, student interest was so great that these two projects formalized into the Global Outreach club. 

Over the past 35 years, this program has been housed near and then eventually within the Division of Mission and the Center for Community Engaged Learning. Our goal is to create spaces of robust spiritual, academic and ethical reflection about global issues of social justice, using Ignatian spirituality as a framework through which we encounter global humanity. 

These projects have been largely transformative for decades of alumni. Your support of the GO 60 campaign will go directly to student scholarships to honor our institutional legacy and create more opportunities for our new generation of rams to GO.
