NANCY HAUSERMAN GLOBAL EXPERIENCE FUND
Jump to giving opportunities
For more than 30 years, Nancy Hauserman has inspired, challenged, and influenced Iowa students. Since joining the faculty ranks in 1976, she has taught thousands of students in the Tippie College of Business, the UI College of Law, in Tippie's International MBA Program in Hong Kong, and in the CIMBA/CUIS program in Italy. Her impact is felt literally around the world.
As an assistant professor, Nancy quickly established herself as a dynamic teacher. As she progressed through the faculty ranks, she gained a campus reputation for her focus on leadership and equal opportunities in the workplace.
Nancy has been a valued university employee and has served on more comittees, task forces, and work groups than she cares to mention. She served as UI ombudsman for several years (no doubt calling upon her Iowa law school background). But, her greatest legacy is students.
Nancy served as Associate Dean in charge of the Tippie Undergraduate Program for many years. In that time, she oversaw the development of the Tippie Honor Code (still enforced within the college today) and the Tippie Young Alumni Board. She took a leading role in providing leadership and ethics programming for our MBA students. Whether discussing Death of a Salesman with her Exec MBA students or mentoring a PhD student, Nancy's impact is impressive. When reminiscing with our alumni, she is one of the most widely regarded faculty names.
In advance of her retirement in December 2013, the Tippie College launched a campaign in her honor. With her blessing, we have established the Nancy Hauserman Global Experience Fund.
This fund will provide resources to help provide global experiences to students who couldn't do so without financial support. In today's global business climate, our employers want students who understand how to work with people across cultures. They need to be able to adapt to unfamiliar settings and understand different languages and perspectives. A study abroad experience can be the life-changing opportunity that sets our undergraduate students on that path. The Nancy Hauserman Global Experience Fund will make that happen.
Pay tribute to Nancy's impact at Iowa by supporting this fund. You'll honor one of our most respected and admired professors and you'll have an impact on business students for decades to come.
