Campus Emergency GuidelinesContact: Bob Howe
Fordham University has extensive contingency plans for almost any kind of on-campus emergency, outlined in the Emergency Procedures Handbook
(PDF). In addition to those procedures, the Department of Safety and Security has developed recommendations for students, faculty, staff, and visitors in the unlikely event a shooting takes place on campus.
Members of the University community are strongly encouraged to become familiar with the Active Shooter Guidelines
, which include a short menu of possible responses to a shooting, and a video tutorial.
The better informed we are as a community, the safer we all will be.
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.
