Robert M. La Follette School of Public Affairs

The Robert M. La Follette School of Public Affairs received funding from the Ira and Ineva Reilly Baldwin Wisconsin Idea Endowment to support Committee Connect – a program that brings together researchers and policymakers early in the legislative process.

The La Follette School of Public Affairs has named Heidi Normandin as its director of legislative outreach and director of the Wisconsin Family Impact Seminars and Committee Connect. Since August 2016, Normandin (MA ’98) has served as associate director of the two programs.

The La Follette School of Public Affairs is seeking an outreach specialist to assist with legislative and other activities that connect UW–Madison faculty members and guests with state lawmakers, scholars, and community members. La Follette School alumni are encouraged to apply.

The La Follette School of Public Affairs at the University of Wisconsin–Madison published a 16-page Highlights report in early October. The document showcases the many achievements of the school’s students, faculty, alumni, and staff during 2016 and 2017.
