Dr. Weiner came to Fisher College as the Program Director of Human Services in 2006. She is also a licensed Psychologist in the States of Massachusetts and New York, and prior to coming to Fisher College, she worked as a clinician in several college counseling centers and at a substance abuse treatment center. She has also taught courses as an adjunct professor at Lesley University and Columbia University. Dr. Weiner’s research interests are in the areas of diversity and multiculturalism, as well as ways to understand and improve pedagogy.
One of the things I love most about teaching at Fisher College is getting to know all of the students so well. Being smaller in size than many colleges around Boston is a true advantage for the professors as well as the students. I feel very fortunate to not only serve as an educator, but also an advisor to all of the Human Services students. I believe that learning is a dynamic process that is constantly evolving. I see my students as having so much to offer throughout the learning process, and I believe in helping them develop curiosity, openness and critical thinking skills.
