Fisher College has named Brenda Sanchez, Vice President of Advancement and Alumni Engagement, as Neighborhood Liason. She is available to respond to any questions or concerns that Fisher neighbors (residents of the Back Bay and Beacon Hill) may have. You can find her contact information here and she is available for virtual office hours between 9am-5pm on Mondays through Fridays. 

Thanks to the Fisher Community for doing their part to keep Fisher safe!  Everyone is doing their part by wearing masks, keeping social distance, and observing increased sanitation and hand-washing protocols.  Continuing to follow these guidelines is extra important as we enter October, with its two full moons, cool weather, football and Halloween, it’s more important than ever to remain vigilant.   We look forward to finding creative ways to enjoy these events safely. Going forward, please remember to:

  • Skip the parties and large indoor gatherings – share your ideas for socially distant celebrations with us!
  • Don’t skip the masks, the social distance markers, or the handwashing!
