Wroxton College of Fairleigh Dickinson University

Fairleigh Dickinson University (FDU) was founded in 1942 and is now the largest private university in the state of New Jersey, USA, with campuses operating in metropolitan New York, Vancouver, Canada, and Oxfordshire, England.

FDU was the first American university to open a campus in England. A Jacobean mansion which incorporates the remains of a medieval abbey, Wroxton College opened in 1965. Wroxton Abbey, near Banbury, Oxfordshire, was the former home of Prime Minister Lord Frederick North, Earl of Guildford (1732-92).

FDU is the first university in the world to have Special Consultative Status with the United Nations (UN) Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) and is a founding member of the UN Academic Impact Program. FDU is a Non-Governmental Organization recognized by the UN Department of Public Information.
