Sacred Heart University’s Charles A. Gillespie, an assistant professor in the Fairfield-based university’s department of Catholic studies, is taking on a new role as director of the Pioneer Journey program. 

Provost Robin Cautin said Gillespie will help the university articulate what makes the student experience at Sacred Heart distinctive.

“We all feel it, but now we will crystallize that experience in a more formalized way,” Cautin said.

A new Pioneer Journey committee will work with faculty and staff to create resources about the distinct characteristics and experiences involved in a Sacred Heart education. 

“There are some really special things taking place at our university, but we don’t celebrate them enough,” Gillespie said. “We’re not loud and shouting from the rooftops about the incredible happenings at Sacred Heart.”
