Robert C. Fischer Institute for Policy and Culture

Hours: Monday–Friday, 8:30am–4:30pm

The Robert C. Fischer Institute for Policy and Culture delivers programs that give opportunities outside the classroom for students to think critically through exposure to worldwide contemporary issues and ideas across disciplines and cultures. The Fischer Institute is also home to the Cultural Enrichment Program.

The Cultural Enrichment Program (CEP) is an administrative degree requirement for participation in the offerings of the Robert C. Fischer Institute for Policy and Culture. The purpose of this program is to expose the student to a rich variety of shared experiences outside of the classroom each academic year.

Students are required to attend Fischer Institute–sponsored events each semester in order to fulfill degree completion requirements. During the academic year, Fischer-sponsored events are promoted through social media, by faculty endorsement, and on print and electronic media. See the Robert C. Fischer Institute for Policy and Culture course catalog page for more information on CEP graduation requirements and Fischer Institute Signature Programs.
