Former Speaker of the House Paul Ryan will join the UW–Madison La Follette School for a public presentation on Tuesday, September 26 at 6 p.m. at the Memorial Union in Madison. The event will also be livestreamed.
“I’m looking forward to being back on UW–Madison’s campus and talking with the university community about the serious challenges facing our state and our nation,” says Ryan.
Speaker Ryan will sit down with La Follette School Director Susan Webb Yackee and share his take on current issues related to:
- Public policy and the American economy
- Bridging political divides
- Lessons from his time in Congress
- Politics on the national and Wisconsin level
- The 2024 presidential election
“There is certainly no shortage of domestic and international issues demanding the attention of policymakers and with Wisconsin once again at the epicenter of the political universe in 2024, I can’t think of a better time or a better place to discuss our nation’s most pressing public policy debates,” says Ryan. “I appreciate the invitation from UW–Madison and the La Follette School and, of course, Go Badgers!”
During the event, Prof. Yackee will ask Speaker Ryan a number of pre-submitted audience questions. Event attendees are invited to submit a question for Speaker Ryan.
This presentation is part of the La Follette School’s Policymaker in Residence Speaker Series, which is generously funded by the Kohl Initiative and American Family Insurance. A recording of the presentation will be available after the event on the La Follette School’s YouTube page.
This event is free, open to the public, and available in person at Memorial Union in Madison or via livestream. Registration is required. To register, visit go.wisc.edu/Ryan.
