The La Follette School will give you the tools necessary to be successful in a career in public policy, regardless of the sector or level of government you are interested in. And better still, it will provide you those tools in an environment that is welcoming and conducive to developing and sustaining relationships with mentors and colleagues.

In her December letter to alumni and friends, La Follette School Director and Professor Susan Webb Yackee reflected on the past year and looked forward to 2022.
