Hauserman receives professorship to mentor faculty and improve teaching
IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Nancy R. Hauserman, professor of management and organizations
at the University of Iowa, has been named the Williams Teaching Professor
in the College of Business Administration.
The Williams professorship provides an award each year for three years
to support a professor's activities in mentoring other faculty and conducting
a for-credit doctoral seminar on the principles of teaching and learning.
Hauserman, a member of the faculty since 1977, is a past winner of the
College of Business Administration Undergraduate Program Outstanding Faculty
of the Year and the MBA Professor of the Year. She served as UI ombudsperson
from 1993 to 1996, mediating complaints and providing problem-solving information
for faculty, staff and students at the UI.
"I think you can be a great teacher and a great researcher,"
Hauserman said. She plans to use her professorship to encourage more creative
ways of teaching, involving students in the classroom and helping students
with learning disabilities.
Hauserman earned a bachelor's degree in English and political science
from the University of Rhode Island and holds a law degree from the UI
College of Law.
The Williams professorship was created through a gift to the University
of Iowa Foundation by an anonymous contributor who is a graduate of the
UI College of Business Administration.
