University of North Carolina Wilmington public affairs professor Jeffrey Brudney was recently honored for lifetime contributions to nonprofit and voluntary action studies. Brudney received the Award for Distinguished Achievement and Leadership in Nonprofit and Voluntary Action Research at the Nov. 18-21 ARNOVA conference in Chicago.

ARNOVA, the Association for Research on Nonprofit Organizations and Voluntary Action, connects scholars and others interested in research on nonprofit organizations, philanthropy and related areas.

"Because this award is meant to recognize a lifetime contribution to the field of nonprofit and voluntary action research, I am particularly appreciative,” said Brudney, the Betty and Dan Cameron Family Distinguished Professor of Innovation in the Nonprofit Sector at UNCW. “In past years, ARNOVA has given this award to the founders of this field of study. I am honored to be included among this distinguished group.”

In addition to receiving the award, Brudney also addressed the conference about this area of academic study and future challenges facing the field.
