About Erik Fuhrer, Ph.D.

I have mentored dozens of faculty and graduate students at The University of Iowa and the University of Notre Dame and approximately one thousand undergraduate students at The University of Notre Dame, Goshen College, St. John's University, Suffolk County Community College, and the College of New Rochelle.


As a teacher and mentor, I have helped creators deepen their practices and coached those in fields traditionally deemed as non-creative on how to embrace their inherent creativity and develop creative methods and techniques to think more thoroughly through their lives and achieve their goals. I am flexible in my approach and quickly attune myself to the learning and writing style of each person I mentor to best harness and develop their unique strengths.
