Dr Kristin Kirk

Colleagues, I am very pleased to report that Kristin successfully defended her dissertation this morning-entitled, “Assessing Nonprofit Websites: Developing an Evaluation Model”- and thereby completed requirements for her PhD In Planning, Governance and Globalization. Special thanks to Kristin’s advisory committee members: Alan Abrahams, Department of Business Information Technology, Jason Kelly, Department of Political Science, Tom Sanchez, Urban Affairs and Planning Program/SPIA and Chris Zobel, Department of Business Information Technology. I served as chair of her committee. Kristin is the 31st student affiliated with VTIPG to complete their doctorate since the Institute’s founding in 2006. Congratulations to Kristin! Best wishes, Max
