Dr. Jason Berman

Professor, Department of Management/Marketing

Dr. Berman came to Fisher in the spring of 1980 as a Visiting Instructor of Management, and has never looked back. Along the way, he discovered a capacity for connecting authentically with students, and he says that has been the culture of the College since he arrived.

He really enjoys watching the developmental transition that happens from freshman to senior year, and says there is "nothing more challenging or rewarding than to be able to promote that process by challenging young people to question and rethink who they really are and who they want to be."

Dr. Berman also believes the College has made an impact on the broader community through its service learning initiatives. But the greater impact of the College's commitment to service has been on the value of a Fisher education.

"Service to others is more than just something to put on your résumé. It is a way of life. Volunteerism adds meaning to your education and makes what you do during and after your college years matter. You learn that the true measure of leadership is not your list of personal accomplishments, but rather what you accomplish on behalf of others."
