At the heart of the Center’s mission is to prepare Fairfield students to become compassionate global citizens, able to put their knowledge into action in support of social good.
The Office of Service Learning and the Jesuit Universities Humanitarian Action Network (JUHAN) work with faculty and community-based organizations to develop and support engaging courses.

The Jesuit Universities Humanitarian Action Network (JUHAN) was launched in 2008 through a joint collaboration between Georgetown, Fordham and Fairfield Universities on the premise that in addressing the needs of those that are suffering, our academic institutions can be more effective when working together rather than independently.
The Office of Service Learning (OSL) is committed to solidarity and collaboration with people who are marginalized. We work to develop community partnerships that are based in mutuality and reciprocity. Through these partnerships, students engage in community service that includes substantial direct contact with low-income residents, social service agency clients, the elderly, public school students, or hospital/clinic patients. They serve as interns and consultants, and support personnel.
