Fisher Inclusion Champions

The purpose of the Fisher Inclusion Champions Program (FICP) is to deepen the college’s commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) by further educating Fisher community members about relevant DEI topics. The FICP also seeks to empower participants to apply this knowledge and to intentionally engage them in relevant activities and projects. The result is a college-wide effort to promote a more inclusive and equitable experience for all at Fisher and beyond.  

FICP cohort members are required to participate in two university DEI trainings or workshops as well as a minimum of two activities that supports any of our diverse or underrepresented populations at Fisher. Individuals who complete the program will be designated as Fisher Inclusion Champions for one academic year. Fisher Inclusion Champions will also be honored at the college’s annual recognition luncheon each spring. Students, faculty and staff will need to participate on a yearly basis to maintain their FICP designation.  

For the 2023-2024 academic year, enrollment in FICP will open shortly. To learn more please contact Amy Weisbach at or
