An administrative office for Fielding to connect and remain connected with national societies and federal agencies that support higher education.
Fielding Graduate University celebrated the opening of the new office in Washington, DC, by hosting an open house on October 21, 2014. Guests included representatives across sectors of the government, education and philanthropy along with Fielding board members, faculty, and students.
Michael B. Goldstein, JD, former Fielding board chair and Frederick Phillips, PsyD, Fielding alumnus and board member, served as hosts for the event while the office representative Vice President of Strategic Initiatives and Director of the Institute for Social Innovation (ISI), Orlando Taylor, PhD, served as emcee.
“The new office is an important place for Fielding,” stated Taylor. “It is located in the same neighborhood as many higher education institutions and other national professional societies, not to mention its close proximity to the White House. Fielding now provides an east coast setting for Fielding leaders, faculty and staff to interact as appropriate with members of Congress and the executive branch of the government. The office also provides a place for the many students in the Baltimore/Washington area to meet and engage in academic and research discussions, and serves as a home away from home for Fielding administrators and faculty who are in Washington doing business. The office is also an excellent venue for individuals to obtain information about the university through information session and meetings. Fielding is breaking out to play in the big leagues simply by being in our nation’s capital.”
