 PVH in partnership with Fordham University
The New York-based company has announced a 1 million US dollars contribution to Fordham University’s Gabelli School of Business. The aim is to establish a leading academic hub for the study of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability
The partnership will work to "develop students into the conscientious business leaders of tomorrow. It is designed to advance relationships between industry and academia to enhance sustainability curriculum and convene global thought leaders. A range of programming and opportunities will be made available, including a quarterly lecture series, a number of research programs for both faculty and students, and new academic offerings for undergraduate and graduate students".

PVH Chairman & CEO Manny Chirico graduated from The Gabelli School of Business and currently sits on the Board of Trustees of the University. In 2018, Manny received an honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters from the University.

“Our partnership with PVH Corp. reflects an innovative model for the Gabelli School – one that takes a holistic, multi-stakeholder approach toward creating impact”, commented Donna Rapaccioli, Dean of the Gabelli School of Business. “The partnership will prove that two organizations with very similar values, but in very different industries, can meaningfully connect to support social and environmental good at a time when we need it most”, she concluded.

Leveraging the synergies between PVH’s Forward Fashion CR strategy and Gabelli School’s recognition as an important player in socially conscious business education, the partnership will build on the shared belief of "businesses’ responsibility to create a sustainable and responsible future".
