An international experience has become an invaluable part of an undergraduate education, and at Fairfield students are invited to responsibly engage with their new host community. All of our programs require all participants to contribute to their new communities through service and mission based programming. Volunteering, internships, experiential activities, and service learning are all valuable ways to better understand the culture and to develop both as an individual and a professional. All of our Center and approved partner programs provide students with a variety of activities and programs that students commit to prior to leaving the United States. The transformative experience of our students from these global engagement opportunities is evident in the semesters following their return and is a great talking point when interviewing with a potential employer or graduate school admissions office. Specific options of global engagement can be found on each program brochure/website.
