Dr. Nemec will be inaugurated as the ninth President of Fairfield University. The ceremony is part of a week-long series of events for the greater University community to welcome Dr. Nemec.

Fairfield is clearly rising—accelerating, growing, and innovating—and I am so excited to be a part of shaping its future.

— Mark R. Nemec, PhD

Fairfield University will inaugurate Mark R. Nemec, PhD, as the University’s Ninth President on Friday, October 20, 2017.

The day will begin with a Mass at the Egan Chapel of Saint Ignatius Loyola at 10 a.m., followed by the installation ceremony beginning at 1:30 p.m. on the Bellarmine Lawn. In addition to students, faculty, staff, and esteemed community members, attendees will include presidents of universities and their representatives and the Bishop of the Diocese of Bridgeport, the Most Reverend Frank J. Caggiano, who will preside over the Mass and give the invocation. The University invites all community members to attend.

“This is an amazing community. Fairfield is clearly rising—accelerating, growing, and innovating—and I am so excited to be a part of shaping its future” said Dr. Nemec.

Additional events include a student reception in the new Tully Dining Commons on Wednesday, October 18, and a staff breakfast followed by a faculty symposium at the Dolan School of Business on Thursday, October 19.

Dr. Nemec began his position at the beginning of July, 2017, as he and his family—his wife Suzy, and their four children, Alex, Teddy, Philip and Kit—became part of the Fairfield community. Prior to his move to Fairfield, Dr. Nemec served as the dean of the Graham School of Continuing Liberal and Professional Studies at the University of Chicago. He was also the president and chief executive officer of Eduventures, a Boston-based information services firm providing research and advice to the higher education community, and had been a member of the executive team of Forrester Research, a provider of similar services to the technology industry.
