    Fordham University is a private university in the United States, with three campuses located in and around New York City. It was founded by the Roman Catholic Diocese of New York in 1841 as St. John's College, placed in the care of the Society of Jesus shortly thereafter, and has since become an independent institution under a lay Board of Trustees which describes the university as "in the Jesuit tradition."

    Enrollment at Fordham University includes nearly 8,000 undergraduate students and 7,000 graduate students spread over three campuses in New York State: Rose Hill in The Bronx, Lincoln Center in Manhattan, and Westchester in West Harrison. The university also participates in educational consortia located in the People's Republic of China and the United Kingdom. Fordham awards bachelor's (BA, BFA, and BS), master's, and doctoral degrees.

    Fordham University is composed of four undergraduate colleges and six graduate schools, including the Fordham Graduate School of Social Service and the Fordham School of Law. The university offers five-year dual-degree BA/BS engineering programs in cooperation with Case Western Reserve University and Columbia University, and a BFA degree program for dance in partnership with the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater.

    The university was affiliated with Fordham Preparatory School, a four-year, all-male, college preparatory school, with which it shares its founding. Since legally separating from the university in 1972, "Fordham Prep" moved to its own facilities bordering the northwest corner of the Rose Hill Campus.
