Sacred Heart University celebrated the grand opening of its new Stamford Graduate Center with a ribbon cutting ceremony on Oct. 22. Guest speakers included Stamford Mayor Michael Pavia and Sacred Heart University President John J. Petillo. A tour of the campus was followed by a reception.

This fall, Sacred Heart expanded its presence in Stamford and Fairfield County by launching new graduate degree programs and additional courses, moving into new classroom space in the center of the city and increasing its involvement and outreach within the metro- and Stamford-area region and business communities.

The graduate center is located in Landmark Square, within walking distance of the city’s transportation center and near restaurants, shopping, businesses and Stamford’s many other downtown assets. The graduate center offers students access to many of Sacred Heart’s existing programs traditionally available at its main campus in Fairfield. These include the university’s digital marketing and human resource management degrees offered through its John F. Welch College of Business; film and television offered through the College of Arts and Sciences and the Isabelle Farrington College of Education’s popular cohort certification program in educational leadership and administration.

“We are excited to increase our presence in Stamford,” Petillo said. “The new graduate center offers greater options for our graduate students while giving us an opportunity to build on an already strong relationship with the Stamford community.”

He said he expected the center to continue to grow and eventually expand its square footage.

Sacred Heart previously offered continuing education initiatives, limited undergraduate classes and corporate training in Stamford, in space located in the Riverbend section of the city.
