For more than 50 years, the Urban Affairs Association (UAA) has relied on the commitment, intellect, and energy of its service leaders. Without these contributions, UAA would not have developed into the strong and dynamic organization it is today, and the field of urban studies would lack its current breadth and richness. In 2013, the Urban Affairs Association created the UAA Distinguished Service Honor Roll to recognize its most impactful service leaders who have contributed outstanding service over the years to the association.
