Brief on visiting institutions
Tulane University, founded in 1834, is a highly selective, private research university located in New Orleans, Louisiana. There are 6,800 undergraduates on our campus, with a student-to-faculty ratio of 8:1, and over 75 majors offered. The university is a member of the prestigious Association of American Universities, a select group of the 62 leading research universities in the United States and Canada with “preeminent programs of graduate and professional education and scholarly research.” Research in many disciplines has flourished at Tulane through the establishment of centers such as, the Murphy Institute of Economics and the Tulane Cancer Center, among others. While Tulane maintains the highest designation for research activity, the university is also recognized for the atmosphere of a smaller institution with classes averaging 21 students, and a flexible curriculum that encourages the study of multiple disciplines and their intersections. New Orleans has long been a city of international trade and exchange, with the most active foreign trade zone in the U.S. due to our port. Tulane values the experience our students gain from our city and as such, is well-known for its emphasis on public service and internships within the community.
We’re one Jesuit, Catholic University on two New York City campuses. The Rose Hill campus is situated on 85 handsome, leafy acres in the Bronx, next door to the New York Botanical Garden, the Bronx Zoo, and the borough’s Little Italy neighborhood. The Lincoln Center campus is set on eight self-contained acres around the corner from Central Park, the Time Warner Center, and Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts. Our three undergraduate schools - Fordham College at Rose Hill, Fordham College at Lincoln Center, and the Gabelli School of Business at Lincoln Center and Rose Hill - are rooted in Fordham’s core curriculum, steeped in Jesuit traditions, and stocked with opportunities for independent research, experiential learning, and civic engagement. Our graduates go on to be transformative figures in politics, education, business, literature, game design, the performing arts, and so on. New York City. Internships. Global experience. Civic engagement. Active pre-professional programs. Expansive research. This is who we are as a Jesuit university. This is what we’re about: opportunity, possibility, a brighter future for you and the world you’ll build.
