The La Follette School is a leading academic institution in improving the design, implementation, and evaluation of public policy and the practice of governance worldwide.
The La Follette School pursues research, education, and public service in a collaborative setting where students, faculty, and practitioners interact closely and draw upon the outstanding scholarly resources of the University of Wisconsin—Madison. In doing so, we:
- produce and publish innovative multidisciplinary policy and management research;
- train, mentor, and educate students interested in domestic and international policy and governance in public, non-profit, and private settings; and
- inform the practice of public affairs locally, nationally, and globally by disseminating knowledge to practitioners and to the broader public.
