Tania Tetlow, J.D. with Rev. Michael J. Garanzini, S.J.

On Saturday, February 3, the Board of Directors for the Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities (AJCU) elected Tania Tetlow, J.D., president of Fordham University, as their next chair. She will be the first lay person and first woman to serve in the role, which will commence on July 1, 2024.

In a statement, President Tetlow said, “I have been very fortunate to have the guidance and support of AJCU’s board since 2018, when I was a new president at Loyola University New Orleans. It is an extraordinary group of leaders and I am humbled to be one of them, much less to chair our board.”
