Laura Auricchio ’86 Appointed as Dean of Fordham University’s Lincoln Center Campus

Laura Auricchio was appointed Dean of Fordham College at Lincoln Center, with her tenure at the school beginning in August 2019. She is the first woman to be named dean of Fordham’s Manhattan campus, which was founded in 1968. She arrives at the college following a six month, nationwide search and an executive transition that took over a year. 

Previously, Auricchio spent seventeen years at The New School, initially as a professor and subsequently as vice provost for curriculum and learning. She holds a deep commitment to Fordham’s mission, including the promotion of diversity on the campus. It is anticipated that she will further cultivate community between the University’s Bronx and Manhattan campuses while retaining the unique character of the Lincoln Center school. Auricchio is also the author of The Marquis: Lafayette

Reconsidered (Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group 2015), which won the American Library in Paris Book Award in 2015 and was the presenter at an HCHSAA book talk in the same year.
