FDU has been associated with the United Nations since its inception in 1945, and that tradition has deepened through our partnership with the Ambassador's Club at the U.N. and our NGO status with the UN's Department of Public Information. The United Nations Pathways, organized by the Office of Global Learning, provides multiple U.N. programming for our FDU community.
