Ways to Get Involved
Your time at college shapes you, providing you with experiences that stay with you long after you leave campus. We like to think that this is especially true for Fairfield alumni, who are known for staying connected with their fellow classmates years after graduation. One way they make this happen is by getting involved with the Alumni Association.
Comprised of a wide representation of Fairfield alumni — demographically, geographically, in occupation, and graduation year, the Association's Board of Directors work hand-in-hand with the University to represent their fellow alumni and be your voice back to Fairfield.
The Student Alumni Association is the student organization of the Fairfield University Alumni Association Our mission, through our student leaders, is to establish a life-long bond with current students and their future alma mater through networking, service, and philanthropy. We aim to show that even though you graduate, your ties to Fairfield last a lifetime.

Alumni of Color Network
The Fairfield University Alumni of Color Network is an official affiliate group of the Office of Alumni Relations that serves to create a community and gateway to support Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) Stags during and after their time at Fairfield.
The network will host a variety of educational, professional, and social programs that cultivate personal and professional connections and opportunities to support the University while demonstrating the strength and success that exists within the BIPOC community.
Alumni-Owned Business Directory
Spread the word about your products and/or services to fellow Stags through the Alumni-Owned Business Directory.
The Office of Alumni Relations has launched an alumni-owned business directory for entrepreneurial Stags. Fairfield alumni who own businesses are invited to create virtual business cards that include: name and class year, a brief description of the company, and company contact information. Business owners also have the opportunity to offer special discounts only for Fairfield alumni.
Once business cards are completed and populated in the directory, they are searchable by various categories like industry, location, and more.
Visit the Directory Search Page to see what businesses are already included. All business types are welcome, including independent consultants (e.g., Mary Kay, Pampered Chef), and/or divisions of larger companies (privately owned insurance, etc.).
To register for the Alumni-Owned Business Directory, go to the Alumni Online Community Directory, log in to activate your account using your pre-existing Online Community username and password, and then complete the Business Directory form.
For log-in help, email email@example.com.
Class Ambassadors are a fundraising arm of the University, serving as liaisons—or the main line of communication—between the Fairfield Fund team and your class year’s alumni. Ambassadors give their time to help shape the learning experience for students by raising critical funds for everything from scholarships and financial aid to innovative research programs and inspirational faculty.
Friends of Fairfield Athletics
In order to be competitive in recruiting the best student-athletes, as well as continuing to enhance the student-athlete experience, the Fairfield University Athletics Department relies on the financial support of Stag Fans through our Friends of Fairfield Athletics groups. This support allows our coaches to provide opportunities and experiences that our student-athletes will take with them long after their days of competition.
