ATHENS, Ga. – Dr. Emmie Cochran-Jackson, assistant professor Psychology at Middle Georgia State University, was selected as a 2016 Governor’s Teaching Fellow. As one of 15 faculty members from institutions of higher education across the state, Cochran-Jackson was selected after a highly competitive application and selection process.

Cochran-Jackson holds a B.A. from Spelman College, an M.Ed. from Howard University and a Ph.D from Georgia State University.

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. Miller envisioned that this program would address faculty members' pressing need to use emerging technologies and instructional tools that are becoming increasingly important for learning in today's society.

The Governor’s Teaching Fellows Program is an outreach of the Institute of Higher Education at the University of Georgia.
