Our Four Priorities
Building off the foundation established by our founders, Fisher Forward will continue the tremendous growth the College has seen over the last two decades by engaging in capital expansion and modernization to facilitate impact now and prepare for a future of sustained growth.
Experiential learning, education that occurs both inside and outside of the classroom, bridges the gap between theory and practice while offering students a safe place to explore the possibilities of their future.
Your generous gift to the Annual Fund will make an immediate impact on our students, expanding our flexibility to facilitate individualized and meaningful academic experiences for each and every one.
When you give to Fisher’s endowment, your gift will grow into something greater, something more impactful than the gift itself. Your gift will be invested and used to support Fisher students for generations to come.
As a faculty member, Fr. William Graf endowed a scholarship to benefit students in his department. In his nearly 40 years at the College, he has seen his students live out the Fisher values well beyond their time on campus.
Mike Henchen, head coach of Fisher’s cross country and track and field programs, says he often wonders how schools that don’t have an outdoor or indoor track attract recruits. From the Polisseni Track and Field Complex, which he calls “simply amazing,” to the throws area, he says Fisher facilities are getting better every day. “It has helped us recruit student-athletes who are focused academically and athletically. They see themselves participating in a great program at a great college, they embrace the Fisher family, and are just a great group of young adults,” he says.
The Fisher experience is so good; it will exceed your expectations in terms of the impact of your gift. We couldn’t be prouder of the character of the students that we graduate and the involvement they bring to their respective communities.”
“Fisher made a commitment to teach me goodness, discipline, and knowledge over my four years. The Spire Society allows me to return that commitment, so I can support its students, faculty, and staff.”— Kelsey Michener ’18
“Fisher was a seminal experience in our life and helped to create the lives we have today. As alumni, we have a responsibility to step up.”— Chris Curtin ’95
