Our Four Priorities

 Integrated Science and Health Sciences (ISHS) Building

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 Fisher 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.

STORIES OF IMPACT
Carry It Forward

As a faculty member, Fr. William Graf endowed a scholarship to benefit students in his department. In his nearly 40 years at the Fisher, he has seen his students live out the Fisher values well beyond their time on campus.

STORIES OF IMPACT
Building Greatness

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.
