Coleman Foundation grant

An $18,000 Coleman Foundation grant will enable five faculty members to infuse their diverse classes — on subjects from hospitality and tourism to music — with entrepreneurship skills.

The five Coleman Fellows are funded through the Bryan School of Business and Economics with a grant from the Coleman Foundation Faculty Entrepreneurship Fellows Program. Dr. Dianne H.B. Welsh wrote and directs the grant. Welsh secured a $15,000 Coleman Foundation grant last year.

The Coleman Foundation Entrepreneurship Fellows for 2011-12 are Jennifer Yurchisin, professor of consumer apparel and retail sales; Bonnie Canziani, professor of hospitality and tourism; Justin Streuli, Living Learning Community coordinator; Stoel Burrowes, professor of interior architecture; and David Holley, music professor and director of UNCG Opera. Burrowes and Holley also received Coleman funds last year, and that funding has been extended.
