Philip J. Lane, PhD, P’10, to Receive Distinguished Faculty/Staff Administrator Award, April 12

Continuing the tradition of recognizing professional excellence at Fairfield University, this year’s Fairfield Awards Dinner will honor Dr. Philip J. Lane for his exemplary achievements in academia, scholarship, and service on April 12 at Cipriani 42nd Street.

Fairfield University will honor Philip J. Lane, PhD, P’10, former associate professor and chair of the economics department, with the Distinguished Faculty/Staff Administrator Award during this year’s Fairfield Awards Dinner on Wednesday, April 12 at Cipriani 42nd Street in New York City.

One of Fairfield’s most beloved professors, Associate Professor Phil Lane, PhD, P '10 taught economics for 40 years until his retirement in 2022. His students consistently rated him as “awesome” and “hilarious.”

In addition to his regular teaching schedule, Dr. Lane taught in the summer program at the National School of Banking (NSB) in what is now the University’s Media Center. In 2000, the NSB honored him for those years of service with the Father McGrath Award. He was a mentor and faculty member with the Ignatian Residential College for 15 years, participating in retreats, guiding students during monthly meetings and through the Examen, and helping them build community with one other.

In honor of Dr. Lane's tremendous contributions to the Fairfield community, Robert ’08 and Shelby (Mayor ’09) Morton are establishing an endowment scholarship fund called The Robert and Shelby Morton Scholarship in Honor of Phil Lane.

Since 1988, the annual Fairfield Awards Dinner has raised more than $20 million for the Alumni Multicultural Scholarship Fund and other scholarships, while celebrating the achievements and volunteer service of distinguished members of the Fairfield community.
