The Higher Education Video Game Alliance (HEVGA) unveiled its Fellowship program and its inaugural class of 30 lifetime fellows.

The group is nominated and elected by their peers. The HEVGA describes the process:

The Higher Education Video Game Alliance Fellows program recognizes senior scholars in the games domain who have made significant contribution to the field in design, theory, or research. HEVGA Fellows are elected by their peers for outstanding contributions to games-based research and design in higher education. Fellows serve as integral ambassadors for the organization and are inducted as lifetime members.

Jesse, a Distinguished Professor of Entertainment Technology at Carnegie Mellon, shares this honor with colleagues from MIT, Dartmouth, NYU Game Center, University of California- Irvine, and other prestigious programs offering entertainment technology and game design programs.
