The Alexander Hamilton Institute for the Study of Western Civilization (AHI) congratulates Senior Fellow Janice Hauge on her recent promotion to full professor in the Department of Economics at the University of North Texas (UNT).

In notifying Dr. Hauge of the promotion, UNT’s President Neal Smatresk said, “Faculty members have too few opportunities for recognition, so this is a particularly proud moment for you and for the institution. Your achievements reflect upon your commitment to your discipline, your students and UNT, and all of us are so very proud of you.”

Dr. Hauge is a recognized authority on telecommunications policy research. A recipient of UNT’s President’s Council Teaching Award, she teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in microeconomic theory, industrial organization, and strategic behavior. She began teaching at UNT in 2003. She also publishes research focusing on competition policy and regulation, primarily addressing the telecommunications and broadband industries.  From 2005 to 2009, she worked as a tutor and project supervisor for the Master’s Program in Telecommunication Regulation and Policy at the University of West Indies.  She currently is chairman of the Telecommunications Policy Research Conference and has served since 2005 as Senior Research Associate at the Public Utility Research Center at the University of Florida.

After graduating from Hamilton College in 1989 with a B.A. degree in American Studies and Economics, Hauge earned a Master of Science degree from the London School of Economics in 1991 and a Ph.D. in economics from the University of Florida in 2001. While at Hamilton College, she qualified for commission as 2nd Lieutenant in the US Marine Corps.  She was an honor graduate in the leadership training course and graduated first in her class. In 2016, Dr. Hauge delivered the AHI’s annual General Josiah Bunting Veterans Day Lecture.

AHI Executive Director Robert Paquette taught Dr. Hauge at Hamilton College. “As an undergraduate Janice coupled intelligence to a ferocious work ethic and fierce determination to succeed.  Her many accomplishments do not surprise. She was not only an outstanding student but a recognized leader and decorated athlete as well.  She has been and will be a great asset to our organization.”
