|About||The Center for Faith & Public Life is a cross-disciplinary forum for students, scholars, policy makers, and religious leaders to converse and reflect on the many issues where religion intersects with civic life. Visit us in CNS 200!|
|Mission||Through academic research, teaching, publications, and public initiatives, the Center hopes to provide a new and exciting focus for viewing the role of religion in the public square.|
Responding to the growing global awareness of the influence of religion on public affairs, Fairfield University has created the Center for Faith and Public Life. Anchored in the rich traditions of Catholic social thought and Jesuit spirituality, the Center respects diversity while promoting the common good.
The Center views faith as a way to link the University to local, national, and international communities. Attending to faith can also proves crucial in preparing and mobilizing people for intelligent participation in political and community life.
Here are some of our projects:
Immigrant Student National Project
Jesuit Universities Humanitarian Action Network
Jesuit Academic Migration Network
We also house the Office of Service Learning, which facilitates connections between focused academic learning that meets disciplinary standards for rigor, with meaningful and appropriate service that addresses needs identified by and with communities.
