College of New Rochelle Cohort Visits Campus
From July 14-18, 25 students and three faculty members from Fisher's Doctoral Program in Executive Leadership from the College of New Rochelle (CNR) extension site visited the campus to participate in a series of academic and professional sessions.
New York State has a residency requirement for extension sites, so students in the cohort must take at least one doctoral course at the degree-granting institution. The course, Guided Dissertation Seminar III, was conducted for the cohort on Fisher's campus, offered in an accelerated format.
Fisher faculty, including Dr. Mike Wischnowski, Dr. Marie Cianca, Dr. Jeannine Dingus-Eason, Dr. Guillermo Montes, and Dr. Arthur Walton, co-taught the weekend with CNR faculty. In addition, several guest speakers from the area led sessions.
The curriculum covered a range of topics, including leadership challenges and opportunities, dissertation defense and completion, research and publication opportunities, and life after the doctoral program. The group also paid a visit to George Eastman House, and enjoyed an Erie Canal dinner cruise.
