Fairleigh Dickinson University is a private, coeducational and nonsectarian university founded in 1942

Fairleigh Dickinson University is a center of academic excellence dedicated to the preparation of world citizens through global education. The University strives to provide students with the multi-disciplinary, intercultural, and ethical understandings necessary to participate, lead, and prosper in the global marketplace of ideas, commerce and culture.

Fairleigh Dickinson University is a constellation of learning environments. Each campus is unique and each is vital to the strength and diversity that set FDU apart. The variety of experiences available to FDU students is rarely found at other schools. No matter what kind of educational environment you seek, no matter what sort of atmosphere appeals to you, you can find it at FDU. It�s a world of experiences � and they�re all part of the FDU Experience. FDU has two main campuses in the United States. The Florham Campus, in Morris County, New Jersey, is a picture-perfect collegiate environment. Ivy-covered buildings, a strong student life program, and traditional amenities and activities make Florham the kind of place people dream about. The Metropolitan Campus, in Teaneck, New Jersey, is by contrast a fast-paced, professionally oriented environment in a suburban setting that feeds off the energy of nearby New York City and serves a mix of residential and commuting students. Many of FDU�s business, professional, science, and healthcare programs -- graduate and undergraduate -- are based at the Metropolitan Campus. FDU�s British campus, Wroxton College, offers students an opportunity to study abroad in an intensive environment. Wroxton is located in the heart of rural England but is still only 70 miles from London. FDU also offers an expansive study-abroad program and partners with other institutions in the U.S. as well. Classes began in 2007 at the Vancouver Campus, in scenic British Columbia, Canada. FDU in Vancouver offers undergraduate students one of the few opportunities to earn an American college degree (currently a B.S. in business management, a B.S. in information technology, or a Masters in Administrative Science) while studying in Canada. At any of the FDU campuses, the student is assured of a supportive and engaging environment, high-tech facilities, and an education that is second to none.
