After a three-day campus visit, Middle States, the accrediting body for Mid-Atlantic universities and colleges, has voted to grant Fordham University a full and unconditional accreditation.
“We are very happy with this assessment, largely due to the hard work of the many staff and faculty who contributed to the self-study, and to Fordham’s strategic planning process, CUSP,” Fordham President Joseph McShane said. “That said, we clearly have more work to do in the years ahead if Fordham is to continue to live up to its mission.”
The accreditation review was conducted by a team led by Boston College President William Leahy. The formal report by the team was delivered on June 24, the day the university celebrated its 175th anniversary.
“Fordham is a vibrant, mission-driven institution and more than ready to meet the needs of the 21st century. The university is a good example of a Jesuit university living out its mission,” the team said in its written report.
