Center for Faith & Public Life


Fairfield University's Center for Faith and Public Life, anchored in Jesuit tradition and Catholic Social Teaching, is committed to advancing the Common Good by improving the social conditions to allow for the full flourishing of individuals and society.

Through multi-disciplinary academic research, engaged teaching, events, publications, and other initiatives the Center seeks to:

  • Prepare students to be global citizens
  • Generate research-based solutions for current social problems - local, national, and global
  • Provide a public forum for engaging issues where faith and public life intersect.
