Our Global Community
From the beginning, a Jesuit education was conceived of as a community of learners that transcended the boundaries of language, culture, background, and nationhood.
That tradition continues at Fairfield University, where students of diverse social, cultural, and ethnic backgrounds come together to collaborate in the search for truth.
There is no doubt that the 21st century will be a global century, and Fairfield University is committed to developing students who are truly "global citizens," with the multicultural competence to be able to reach across boundaries to find points of common understanding.
Through our study abroad network in Europe, Latin America, and Asia, our service-learning programs in the developing world, and our commitment to social justice at home and abroad, the Fairfield University community is committed to playing a dynamic role in the global community.
