Stephen H. Haber, the Helen and Peter Bing Senior Fellow at Hoover and the A. A. and Jeanne Welch Milligan Professor in Stanford’s Department of Political Science, was announced as the recipient of the 2012 Phi Beta Kappa Teaching Prize at Stanford University. This is the second major teaching award Haber received during graduation week; at the graduation ceremony, Haber accepted the Walter G. Gores Teaching Award.
Nominated by members of the class of 2012, a panel of Phi Beta Kappa seniors select the winner based on excellence in teaching and the ability to inspire personal and intellectual development beyond the classroom by “encouraging critical and analytical thinking, taking an active interest in students as individuals, and influencing the way students think about the world.” (Phi Beta Kappa website)
Haber joins David Brady, the Davies Family Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution, as a Phi Beta Kappa prize winner. Brady received the award in 1991.
