The Commons room in a new Engineering Research Center bears his name. During the academic year 1991-1992, he held the Robert Foster Cherry Chair for Distinguished Teaching at Baylor University. SUNY-Stony Brook bestowed an Honorary Doctor of Science on Dr. Hazeltine in 1988 and the Brown University Faculty awarded him the Susan Colver Rosenberger medal in 2015.
