Meet the New Faculty: Holly Sherburne and Jessica Stutt

Holly Sherburne (Bowdoin College) and Jessica Stutt (UNB) to replace Dr. Liz Gross

Dr Liz GrossAfter her 2.5-year tenure with Higher Ed Experts, Dr. Liz Gross taught her last course session of our professional certificate program on social media measurement for higher ed this summer. She has stopped teaching the 4-week online program in order to focus 100% of her time on her next big venture (or her world domination plans as I like to put it). I can’t say anything more about Liz’ plans for now, but you’ll all hear about it this coming Fall (how’s that for a teaser? 🙂

While we’re all sad at Higher Ed Experts to see our dear Dr. Liz leave the team, we’re also very excited to welcome two alums of the social media measurement program as its new instructors:

  • Holly Sherburne, Director of Digital and Social Media at Bowdoin College
  • Jessica Stuff, Integrated Marketing Manager at UNB.

Both Jessica and Holly will alternate teaching duties starting with the September session.
