Public Administration


Kate Albrecht began the Ph.D. program in August 2015. She received her Masters of Public Administration from North Carolina State in 2016. Her research interests include 1) the dynamics of accountability in nonprofit-public partnerships and 2) the evolution of collaboratives that draw members from all sectors. Kate has authored and co-authored research that she has presented at the conferences of The Association for Research on Nonprofit Organizations and Voluntary Action (ARNOVA) and the International Society for Third Sector Research (ISTR). She is also a member of a multi-disciplinary research team led by Dr. Branda Nowell.  Kate’s career goal is that her research will both advance theory-building and provide actionable best practices for public sector leaders.
