Why SHU?

‌We Believe in the Power of your Dreams.

The true worth of your Sacred Heart experience won’t be measured by facts we teach you or skills you acquire while you are here.  

It won’t be something that we give you. 

At Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, CT we believe that inquiry, pursuing knowledge and intelligent reflection – both inside and outside the classroom – create greater opportunities and choices. We challenge you to be fearless in your curiosity and courageous in your service to others.

We are passionate about the role we play in helping you reveal your true potential. The discovery of your own talents, abilities, strengths, character and dreams is the most valuable outcome we strive for as educators and mentors.  

It's what you give us.

We Believe Opportunity is Invaluable.
