In a unanimous vote of the Urban Affairs Association (UAA) Governing Board, Dr. Richard Cole was inducted as a member of the UAA Service Honor Roll.
In a letter to Cole, the Governing Board noted that the award is well-deserved and stated, “On behalf of the many urbanists who have benefited from your work, and the future generations who will build upon its foundation, we offer our heartfelt gratitude.”
The letter went on to say, “The Urban Affairs Association has created the UAA Service Honor Roll to recognize those members who have contributed outstanding service over the years to the association.”
Cole, along with other honorees, will be recognized at the UAA conference to be held in San Francisco this April.
The association’s website states, “The Urban Affairs Association (UAA) is the international professional organization for urban scholars, researchers, and public service professionals.”
