Fairfield University strives to continually strengthen our relationships with community organizations and to work toward establishing mutually beneficial partnerships. Community partners benefit from the skills, compassion, and commitment of our students, faculty, and staff who, in turn, benefit from the experience and expertise of the community.

"Professor Weiden's tax class provided a unique way for accounting students to use their skills to become engaged in the surrounding community. Our group found their eager attitudes and expertise invaluable during tax season. We always look forward to working with Fairfield University students."

Arts & Minds

One of the University's most important aspirations is to serve as a center of cultural enrichment for the broader community. We want to host the most innovative and exciting performers from the world of dance, music, and theatre, and be a place where the encounters with their remarkable talents are shared among the campus community and our friends and neighbors. We also hope to serve as a place where the most pressing issues of our time may be presented for reflection and discussion. To learn more please visit The Regina A.
