New Fordham President Is Breaking New Ground

Congratulations to Tania Tetlow who was recently elected 33rd president of BCW Member Fordham University. President-Elect Tetlow will be the first layperson and the first woman to occupy the post in Fordham’s 181-year history. She will take office on July 1, 2022.

President-Elect Tetlow comes to Fordham from Loyola University New Orleans, where she has served as president since August 2018. She received her Juris Doctor degree from Harvard Law School, magna cum laude, in 1995, and her Bachelor of Arts in American studies from Tulane University, cum laude, in 1992. Among her other honors, she was a Harry S. Truman Scholar.

Prior to being named president of Loyola, she held the office of senior vice president and chief of staff at Tulane University from 2015 to 2018. She also served at Tulane as associate provost for international affairs, the Felder-Fayard Professor of Law, and director of Tulane’s domestic violence clinic.

Tetlow is a member of the Fordham family: her late father, Louis Mulry Tetlow, a psychologist and former Jesuit priest, received his Ph.D. from Fordham’s Graduate School of Arts and Sciences (GSAS) in 1974, four years after earning a master’s degree from Fordham; and President-Elect Tetlow’s mother, Elisabeth M. Tetlow, is also a double GSAS graduate, classes of 1967 and 1970, with master’s degrees in philosophy and theology. President-Elect Tetlow’s parents met and married at Fordham, and she was born in New York before moving to New Orleans.
