Student Profiles

  • Brian Barnett, MPA and Ph.D. in Neuroscience

    All of my La Follette coursework so far has been very useful for gaining a more complete understanding of the policy-making process and methods for analyzing and comparing policy options.

Alumni Profiles

  • Jamie Aulik (MPA '06)

    Having served at the federal, state, county, and local level, I’m living proof that a La Follette School education can literally prepare you for almost any career field in government.
