Fielding Graduate University was founded by a group of distinguished academic leaders and educators. They envisioned a nationally recognized graduate school, which would serve mid-career professionals who wanted to pursue an advanced degree but whose educational and career objectives could not be met by traditional institutions of higher education.
Today, Fielding is the leading provider of knowledge, new practices, and graduate-level learning opportunities in the fields of clinical and media psychology, organizational development, and educational leadership. A nonprofit, accredited university, Fielding is headquartered in Santa Barbara, California. Its globally distributed community of scholar-practitioners is dedicated to transformational learning; social justice; diversity; and innovation and advancement for individuals, organizations, communities, and society.
