Organization:
The mission of the Orthodox Christian Studies Program at Fordham University is to "provide a venue for the academic study of Eastern Orthodox Christianity that is enriching not only for students and faculty, but for the Orthodox and non-Orthodox communities in New York and around the country."

Projects:
Helped to sponsor the 2006 and 2008 installments of the Orthodoxy in America lecture series. This annual lecture series is the largest of its kind and only one housed in a university setting. The 2006 speaker was Dr. Albert Raboteau, an African-American Orthodox professor from Princeton University. The 2008 speaker was Dr. Susan Ashbook-Harvey, professor of Religious Studies at Brown University, who specializes in late antique and Byzantine Christianity, with Syriac studies as her particular area of interest.
