Amy Fisher is a long-term advocate for recovery in higher education.  She has been involved in the national movement to build and sustain Collegiate Recovery Communities since 2009.  Ms. Fisher has practiced clinical social work with an emphasis on addiction at both the university and community level since 2004.  In 2012, she joined the faculty of the Department of Social Work as Assistant Professor of Social Work.
