Tom and Vivian Hall Faculty Excellence Award

MU Economics

Congratulations to Aaron Hedlund, recipient of the Hall Award for Faculty Excellence for 2020.  Dr. Hedlund had an amazing year of professional accomplishments, highlighted by his service on the Whitehouse Council of Economic Advisors in Washington, DC; the publication of his study, “Mortgage Debt, Consumption, and Illiquid Housing Markets in the Great Recession,” as the lead article in the American Economic Review (the flagship scholarly journal in Economics); and his promotion to Associate Professor with tenure.  We are especially grateful to Tom and Vivian Hall, whose generosity makes this well-deserved recognition possible.
