What is MVP?

Fairfield University’s Multicultural Visit Program (MVP) embraces social justice, diversity, equity, and inclusion as a distinguishing hallmark of Jesuit education. As a result, the Office of Undergraduate Admission sponsors MVP to support and recruit students with a strong interest in diversity and students from traditionally underrepresented populations.

MVP connects prospective and admitted students with current students, faculty, and staff through intentional visit opportunities and personal connections.

Understanding the importance of being a part of a community that welcomes and supports students of all backgrounds, we hope that after attending an event within the MVP, you will understand your value to our campus and be able to see yourself as a member in Fairfield’s mission for a community that respects and values one another.

Ready to experience being our MVP? Contact us today and check out our program experiences below.
