Student Profiles

  • Travis Shoemaker, MPA

    I would like to work on environmental policy or environmental management. To supplement my MPA, I enrolled in the Certificate in Business, Environment, and Social Responsibility Program, which has helped me develop the skills to analyze how businesses incorporate sustainability measures and whether those measures are effective.

Alumni Profiles

  • Alexis MacDonald (MPA ’08)

    I chose the La Follette School because its commitment to practicing the Wisconsin Idea really resonated with me. I was drawn to UW-Madison’s longstanding commitment to extending its expertise beyond campus borders to solve problems and make positive changes throughout the state, the nation, and the world.
