Dr. Rebman’s scholarship is focused on corporate and organizational social responsibility, organization mission, ethical frameworks, including Catholic social teaching, and the assessment of organizational performance. Dr. Rebman recently published a paper in the Journal of Catholic Social Thought and has presented at conferences related to business and corporate responsibility and the application of this work to higher education. He actively participates in the Benedictine Pedagogy Conferences, the Benedictine University Teach-In, and other programs on and off campus.

Dr. Rebman works to enhance the quality of student learning outcomes through enhanced teaching methods, student interaction, and the appropriate use of technology. He has enhanced coursework to provide students with relevant experience using professional software in his Taxation and Auditing courses, and he has developed critical thinking cases for each of his courses to help students apply course concepts and techniques to real world challenges. A university education should help students grow as persons, prepare students to succeed in careers, and to develop ethical solutions for the challenges that they will face as adults and citizens in a changing world.
