May 14 — 11:00 am to 1:00 pm
In addition to UW–Madison’s Commencement ceremonies, the La Follette School will celebrate graduating MPA and MIPA students during a ceremony in the Assembly Chambers of the State Capitol building.

Information about cap and gown rental or purchase is available from the University Book Store.
