Peyton Frye


Center for Family and Community Engagement


Peyton is going into her senior year studying a BA in Psychology and BS in Business Administration with an Information Science concentration and a Criminology minor. She is interested in researching mental health and well-being for vulnerable populations, like veterans and criminal offenders, and applying sociological/psychological theory to counterterrorism and intelligence analysis research. Last year, she began her research journey working for the Military Psychology and Forensic Psychology labs at NC State. This will be her first semester as a student worker for the Center. She aspires to obtain a publication prior to graduation on her work with the Center. After graduation, she plans to apply to PhD programs in Psychology and/or Public Policy to continue her research for community engagement.
