Fairleigh Dickinson University Press (FDU Press) is a publishing house under the operation and oversight of Fairleigh Dickinson University, the largest private university in New Jersey. FDU Press was established in 1967 by the university's founder Peter Sammartino, in cooperation with the publisher Thomas Yoseloff, formerly the director of University of Pennsylvania Press. Yoseloff had left this position the year before to found Associated University Presses (AUP), intended to operate as a consortium of small- to medium-sized university presses and publisher/distributor of humanities scholarship; FDU Press became the first participating member of AUP in 1968. When Associated University Presses ceased operating in 2010, a new distribution agreement was struck with Rowman & Littlefield.[citation needed]

FDU Press has issued over 1500 non-fiction and research titles since its inception, the majority in the fields of literature, literary criticism, arts, history and other social sciences.[citation needed]
