Meet Students & Faculty

Meet some of our students and faculty, and hear directly from them what a Fisher education is all about.

Dr. Whitney Rapp

Associate Professor, School of Education

Dr. Rapp came to Fisher full-time in 2002 after serving as an adjunct instructor in 2001. She was immediately attracted to the collaborative, close-knit community here, and was impressed by how well the faculty and staff across campus knew each other, worked together, and how well they knew the students.

She calls Fisher a "nurturing place to be a faculty member," having found many opportunities to collaborate with colleagues as well as opportunities to continually improve and develop new courses, programs, and teaching methods.

Having had many students stay in her mind through the years, she recalls one student in particular who questioned things in a way that no student had questioned her before. Those questions challenged her to articulate her own experiences and the evolution of her dedication to full inclusion of all students.

"My job was not to change his mind or tell him my way was right, but to offer him a new perspective to consider. He was open to that new perspective and considered it deeply. We are both better teachers for it."

Rapp is continually awed by the endeavors and accomplishments of the education students, noting that Fisher is a place for students to get involved, be challenged, and grow.
