The Lyles Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship at Fresno State has selected four Coleman Fellows for the 2015-16 academic year.
As part of the Coleman Fellowship, faculty members from a multitude of disciplines incorporate entrepreneurial elements into their lesson plans, and are given a two-semester stipend. Through the Coleman Fellowship, access to entrepreneurship is made available to students outside of the business school.
They will join the Fresno State cohort created in 2005, consisting of 21 faculty members.

Davis will offer the Fashion Study Tours course to focus on entrepreneurship within the fashion industry.
Herzig will reshape two courses, Nutrition Assessment and Community Nutrition, to incorporate entrepreneurial components.
Therkelsen will develop a special topics course in Media Production Entrepreneurial Concepts.
Nelson will modify the Methods and Materials for Secondary Science Teaching course to incorporate entrepreneurial themes.
