Jessi Shrout and Juli Clay selected to Governor’s Teaching Fellows Program

Brenau’s Jessi Shrout, assistant professor of biology, and Juli Clay, associate professor of mass communication, have been selected for the Governor’s Teaching Fellows Program.

The Governor’s Teaching Fellows Program was established in 1995 by then-Gov. Zell Miller to provide Georgia’s higher education faculty with expanded opportunities for developing important teaching skills. The program is offered through the Institute of Higher Education at the University of Georgia.

Governor’s Teaching Fellows may participate in academic year symposia; an intensive summer symposium; or an academic-year residency at the University of Georgia. Past symposia have addressed numerous topics in using technology in the classroom and other pedagogical innovations.

This year’s summer program runs this week and next, May 14-18 and May 21-25. For more information, go to

Congratulations to Jessi and Juli!
