Global Citizens.
Research-based Solutions.
A public forum for dialogue.

At Fairfield University's Center for Faith and Public Life, our goals are to prepare students to be global citizens; generate research-based solutions to current social problems; and create a public forum for dialogue on issues where faith and public life intersect.

Anchored in Jesuit tradition and Catholic Social Teaching, the Center 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, and events, the Center offers students the opportunity to immerse themselves in service learning and immersion experiences, and faculty to creatively develop their classes to have the most impact on real world situations.
