The Opus College of Business at the University of St. Thomas has announced that Dr. Jay Ebben is the first winner of the newly instituted Julie Hays Teaching Award. Dr. Ebben, who has taught at St. Thomas since 2002, is an associate professor within the Schulze School of Entrepreneurship in the Opus College of Business.

In a letter nominating Dr. Ebben, a former student wrote, “Both in and out of the classroom, there is a genuine ‘student first’ mentality with Jay that fosters academic and professional growth to the highest degree.” The letter cited Dr. Ebben’s ability to make complex material understandable to students in the classroom as well as his willingness to work many hours outside of class to help students develop their own entrepreneurial ideas and further their entrepreneurial plans.
