Philosophy Professor Receives Robert F. Kennedy Teaching Award

Philosophy professor Jeffrey Hause, Ph.D., received the Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Award for Teaching Achievement during Creighton University’s spring commencement on May 13 at the Omaha Civic Auditorium.

Hause has only been with the university for four years, but in that time he has earned the respect of students and faculty. He has served on the College of Arts and Sciences Senate, participated in two Cardoner seminars, and earned a seat on the Executive Board for the Honors Program.

Students say Hause is always willing to go the extra mile. “He always asks how we are doing and seems to care about the answer,” said one student. “He did not just ask because he felt he had to, but because he wanted to get to know us personally.”

The Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Award for Teaching Achievement is presented each year to one Creighton University faculty member by the Creighton Students Union. The award honors someone who embodies the University’s mission and who reflects the Jesuit ideals.
