    Graduate school is a time to explore! It is not necessary to start (or end!) school with a clearly defined career goal. The skills you’ll develop during your time at La Follette will be applicable in many fields.

Alumni Profiles

    At the moment, I am in the midst of three vastly different and exciting research projects. I am looking at pharmaceutical corporate charitable giving, executive compensation, and income sources for those living on and off Native American tribal lands.
