Brandy Kennedy, Ph.D.

This symposium on Election Integrity is chaired and led by Dr. Brandy Kennedy, Carl Vinson Endowed Chair and professor of political science and public administration, Georgia College. 

Carl Vinson Endowed Chair

Brandy Kennedy, Ph.D. is the Carl Vinson Endowed Chair and professor of political science and public administration in Georgia College's Department of Government & Sociology. 

Her teaching and research interests include representation, bureaucracy, and political behavior.  Her publications focus on representative bureaucracy which examines the link between demographic representation of historically underserved populations and improved service outcomes. Race and Representative Bureaucracy in American Policing (2018) by Kennedy, Butz, Lajevardi, and Nanes applies the theory of representative bureaucracy to issues of race and policing.  Their findings suggest police forces that are more demographically representative will have more positive outcomes across various measures such as fewer excessive force complaints. Her current work analyzes the influence of representation on teacher satisfaction and tenure.
