In addition to his academic career, Haning is a captain in the Naval Reserves and served in the Middle East. A colleague observed, "I feel envious of his teaching style because of his command of his subject, his effectiveness in communicating the material he would like the audience to take with them, his creative use of humor and his dedication to the teaching endeavor."

The Regents’ Medal for Excellence in Teaching is awarded by the Board of Regents as tribute to faculty members who exhibit an extraordinary level of subject mastery and scholarship, teaching effectiveness and creativity and personal values that benefit students.
