Professor Rick Hall has won the Excellence in Mentoring Award from the Public Policy Section at American Political Science Association (APSA). The section established the award “to recognize sustained efforts by a senior scholar to encourage and facilitate the career of emerging political scientists in the field of public policy.”
Ford School Dean Michael S. Barr said, "This recognition is a well-deserved honor for Rick's tremendous work in support of our students."
Hall has been a professor of political science and public policy at the University of Michigan since 1986. In 2020, he won the prestigious Barbara Sinclair Award, also from APSA, in recognition of his contributions to understanding legislative politics. At the Ford School, Rick teaches courses on the politics of policy analysis, policy advocacy, campaign finance reform, and the politics of health policy.
