Fisher College

At Fisher College, we believe that college is more than just an education—it's a life-changing experience. For more than a century, Fisher has been changing lives by providing opportunities to students focused on the three most important aspects of a college experience: education, dedication, and life.

Fisher College was founded in 1903 in the working-class city of Somerville, Massachusetts, less than two miles outside of the city of Boston. Myron and Edmund Fisher, the brotherly entrepreneurs who founded the early college that would become Fisher College were focused on providing immigrants in the city of Boston the opportunity to advance beyond their unskilled Labor jobs. Later, the Massachusetts Board of Regents of Higher Education approved Fisher College as a two-year university, leading to Fisher’s acceptance as a degree-granting institution five years later. Their roots foster a diverse campus environment with a student body from across all part of America and countries across the globe.

Fisher College’s mission is to improve lives by providing students with the knowledge and skills necessary for a lifetime of intellectual and professional pursuits.
