It is with great pleasure that we report that Professor Budd Hall has been made an Officer of the Order of Canada in recognition of 'his contributions as a pioneer in the field of Community-based research, and for his advancement of knowledge building and research capacity around the world'. This award is administered on behalf of the sovereign, King Charles III, by the Governor-General of Canada and is how the country 'honours people who make extraordinary contributions to the nation'.
Budd has received this award notably in recognition of his work over the last decade as Co-Chair of the UNESCO Chair in Community-Based Research and Social Responsibility in Higher Education, but of course for many decades he has been one of the world's most prominent adult educators. This is a greatly deserved honour, which all the adult education community will be celebrating.
