Workshop project proposals sought

The La Follette School of Public Affairs is seeking client-based projects for students in its Workshop in Public Affairs and Workshop in International Public Affairs courses. Applications from public, nonprofit, or private-sector organizations are due December 1. Alumni are encouraged to apply.

Serving others is a high priority for students at the La Follette School of Public Affairs. So it should come as no surprise that alumni eagerly volunteer with their alma mater.

Dan Leopold (MPA ’03) recently was promoted to the chief intelligence officer for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) in Chicago.

Alexis MacDonald (MPA ’08)

I chose the La Follette School because its commitment to practicing the Wisconsin Idea really resonated with me. I was drawn to UW-Madison’s longstanding commitment to extending its expertise beyond campus borders to solve problems and make positive changes throughout the state, the nation, and the world.
