As a community, we share a commitment to inquiry and discernment, and a determination to serve as global citizens — supporting the dignity and essential human rights of all persons. Our universities are arguably our nation’s greatest long-standing institutions. This greatness stems in no small part from a global outlook, which at Fairfield is informed by our Jesuit values of respect and inclusion; in our approach to teaching, in the breadth of our scholarship, and through the students, faculty, and staff who become a part of our academic communities.

Acute stress reactions, anxiety, grief and depression are some of the common psychological reactions that might arise and we can help students develop resilience and coping skills to deal with whatever faces them.
