  1. It is wonderful news to see graduates from the PhD program at Fordham actively participating and contributing in such high calibre conferences such as the ISREV. Many thanks to the great academic and administrative staff at the Graduate School of Religion and Religious Education for inspiring us and for presenting an excellent doctoral program for us!
