Showing Our Community How We Move Fisher Forward
From Kearney Hall, named in honor of Bishop James E. Kearney and his leadership during the College’s first fundraising campaign, to the Wegmans School of Pharmacy and the Wegmans School of Nursing, made possible by gifts from Robert and Peggy Wegman, Fisher proudly bears the names of partners who have transformed the campus. Whether students are studying in the School of Business in the Victor E. Salerno Center for American Enterprise or celebrating Mass in the Hermance Family Chapel of St. Basil the Great, they are inspired by the generosity and philanthropic spirit of the Fisher family.

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.
