Jess & Mildred Fisher College of Science & Mathematics


In 2005, the trustees of the Robert M. Fisher Memorial Foundation presented Towson University with a "transformational" $10.2 million to endow scholarships, establish a chair in the biological and physical sciences, and rename the College of Science and Mathematics in recognition of Jess and Mildred Fisher. Jess Fisher (see link to brief biography below), a Baltimore native who attended Towson in the 1930s and who later became a real estate developer and philanthropist, established the foundation in memory of his son, Robert. Two endowed scholarships now honor the memory of Robert M. Fisher and his sister, Cecilia Fisher Rudman.

The funds will be used in several ways:
