Wolbrecht is associate professor and director of the Rooney Center for the Study of American Democracy at the University of Notre Dame. She is the author of The Politics of Women’s Rights: Parties, Positions, and Change, which received the 2001 Leon D. Epstein Outstanding Book Award from the Political Organizations and Parties Section of the APSA, and co-editor (with Rodney E. Hero) of The Politics of Democratic Inclusion and (with Karen Beckwith and Lisa Baldez) of Political Women and American Democracy.
The William J. Mazzocco Lecture in Distributive Justice was established in 2006 to honor 1937 UP alumnus Bill Mazzocco, who had a long, distinguished career in military intelligence with various World War II assignments at diplomatic posts, and made significant contributions to the Marshall Plan. He credited his years at UP with giving him a solid moral foundation that guided his steadfast belief in the principles of equitable and fair distribution of wealth.
