Elizabeth (Beth Anne) Fisher will be joining us in December as Emmanuel College's spiritual and community life program coordinator. She will be available to meet by appointment with students about non-academic and/or personal matters. She will also liaise with the Emmanuel College Student Society (ECSS) and coordinate the spiritual practices and community events that Samantha Cavanagh had organized before her maternity leave.
If you meet Beth Anne in the hallways of Emmanuel in January, please warmly greet her and ask how her trip was to campus!
When asked about working at the College, Beth Anne said, "I'm delighted to be joining the team at Emmanuel in this role! Emmanuel's multifaith context has been profoundly formative for me, and I'm honoured to bring my passion for and experiences in interfaith collaboration and cultivating whole-person thriving to support our student community."
Congratulations, Beth Anne!
