Two Tippie Faculty Members Win Top Teaching Award
Nancy Hauserman, professor of management and organizations, and Todd Houge, lecturer in finance, each have won a 2010 President and Provost Award for Teaching Excellence in recognition of their years of outstanding teaching.
The award, which is administered by the UI Council on Teaching, was created in 2004 as a University-wide recognition for faculty members who have demonstrated a sustained, high level of teaching excellence.
Hauserman, who holds the Williams Teaching Professorship and has a secondary appointment in the UI College of Law, has taught in the Department of Management and Organizations since 1977. A leader in educational innovation within the Tippie College of Business, she has been an early and successful adopter of new teaching technologies, and she was one of the University's first and most passionate advocates of service learning. She was instrumental in the establishment of the Judith R. Frank Business Communications Center, which now serves more than 400 students each semester. She won the Collegiate Teaching Award in 2003 and has been voted Professor of the Year by undergraduates and by MBA students.
Houge, who holds the Curt and Carol Lane Faculty Research Fellowship, has taught in the UI Department of Finance since 1998. He advises students and teaches the courses associated with the Tippie College of Business' two highly successful student-managed funds: the Krause Fund, managed by undergraduates, and the Henry Fund, managed by MBA students. Firms regularly seek out students who have participated in these courses because they are so well prepared to succeed in financial research positions. Houge won the 2004 Collegiate Teaching Award and has been selected by both undergraduate and graduate students to receive awards for faculty excellence.
