Fairfield University

Joan Overfield

University Librarian & Director of Library Services

Fairfield's core curriculum is one of the most comprehensive in the country. Its primary role is to encourage students to become versatile, multidisciplinary thinkers who develop lifelong habits of the mind - to connect learning across subjects while in college and beyond.

Fairfield's University Plan
places Jesuit and Catholic Mission and Identity at its center.

Four Major Objectives are Identified:
1. The facilitation and continued integration of all programs and activities related to our Jesuit and Catholic Mission.

2. An intellectual and spiritual investigation of the Catholic and Jesuit heritage.

3. A link from this heritage to real world issues of social justice so critical to the teachings of the Church.

4. An innovative program specifically for students to examine their sense of calling and mission in their personal lives and career choices
Fairfield University, founded in 1942,
is one of twenty-eight Universities and
Colleges founded
by the Society of Jesus (the Jesuits)
in the United States.
By integrating living and learning, and combining a broad liberal arts foundation with professional preparation, our students graduate with the tools, confidence, and vision to put their unique gifts to work as successful global citizens for the benefit of their communities and the world.
