Sacred Heart University was founded in Fairfield, Connecticut, in 1963 to provide an affordable, quality education to the local community. Since then we have grown to become the second-largest Catholic university in New England and our reach now extends around the country and the world via our online programs. Our commitment to educational excellence is reflected in our distinguished full-time faculty, over 80% of who hold the highest degrees in their fields.
Sacred Heart's academic signature at the undergraduate level is defined by the importance of the Human Journey—the lifelong search for meaning, values, and intellectual growth during our existence. Professional and personal success is intertwined with the quest to build a better world for the common good. These core beliefs are reflected in our curriculum, mission, and culture.
At Sacred Heart, we celebrate rigorous scholarship, a commitment to spiritual and ethical values, serving those in need, and rejoicing in learning and discovery. We strive to build a diverse community to support our students as they rise to meet the challenges of our expectations—and their own.
