Dr. Juan Meng
Congratulations to Dr.Juan Meng, Assistant Professor in the Department of Advertising and Public Relations, who was selected to participation in the University of Georgia’s 2013-2014 Teaching Academy Fellows Program. The program, coordinated by UGA’s Teaching Academy, with funding support from the Office of Provost and PricewaterhouseCoopers, seeks to promote and celebrate excellence in teaching, and to foster learning through inquiry.         
“Teaching is one of the most important things in my academic career, so I feel so honored to be selected,” said Dr. Meng. “I have heard lots of great comments about the Teaching Academy Fellows Program as a wonderful early-career mentoring program.”
Dr. Meng, along with four other early career faculty members and a pair of Teaching Academy mentors, will interact within her group and with all other early career faculty members in the program during the academic year. Dr. Meng will be observing classes and having members of the program observe her classes as well. “The program is a great opportunity to share my knowledge and experience in teaching with other fellows to enhance the development of the teaching community and mission at UGA and eventually maximize my students’ learning experience,” said Dr. Meng.

"We are very excited," said Tom Reichert, AdPR Department Head. "All of our recently hired assistant professors are participating as Teaching Academy Fellows or fellows in the Lilly Program. It shows their commitment to teaching excellence."
