Budd Hall Awarded David H. Turpin Gold Medal for Career Achievement in Research

For more than 40 years, Budd Hall has envisioned and worked to build a world that functions as a “knowledge democracy” through teaching, creating diverse and resilient networks, and helping communities drive research as a globally recognized innovator of participatory research. By taking this vision mainstream and global, his work has impacted university students, peers and the public—from injection drug users to homeless individuals, urban slum dwellers and rural poor to sex workers. Hall’s leadership on community-based research has transformed academia and, perhaps more importantly, the knowledge democracy that he champions has transformed lives.
