Overview

Founded in 1942, Fairfield University is relatively new to the scene. But as one of 28 Jesuit institutions of higher education in the United States, Fairfield is backed by the historic Jesuit commitment to education – Jesuits have been running schools since 1547. Fairfield is committed to educating a diverse community of students of all faiths, from a “liberal and humanistic perspective.”
