Fisher in Rochester

Dr. Carolyn Vacca

The connection between St. John Fisher University and the Rochester, New York, community has been strong since Fisher’s early days. The community came together to financially support the institution’s founding, and over the decades Fisher has supported the Rochester community. Through supporting its industries, educating its workforce, and serving its citizens, Fisher has made an indelible impact on the region.

Dr. Carolyn Vacca is professor and chair, History Department, and interim chair, Criminology and Criminal Justice, and is the Monroe County historian.
