The Association for Budgeting and Financial Management has awarded Carol Ebdon, Ph.D., the 2018 Paul Posner Pracademic Award, honoring her lifetime achievement in the field.
Ebdon is a Regents/Foundation Professor within the School of Public Administration where she also serves as the Master's of Public Administration program chair. In 2004, Ebdon left UNO to work as the finance director for the City of Omaha before returning back to UNO in 2009.
The Paul Posner Pracademic Award is presented to honor lifetime achievement for significant contributions to the field of budgeting and financial management as both a practitioner and an academic. The award is not given out annually, but when an exemplary candidate is nominated and ultimately approved by the Paul Posner Pracademic Award Committee. Ebdon is the inaugural recipient of the award.
Making direct connections between theory and practice is very useful in an applied field like public administration."
