The La Follette School of Public Affairs is seeking candidates for its department administrator position. July 12 is the deadline for applications.

With an emphasis on service, 48 La Follette School students celebrated their graduation Sunday, May 12 in the Wisconsin Capitol’s Assembly Chamber. How fitting, then, that one of the state’s most well-known public servants – former U.S. Sen. Herb Kohl – attended the ceremony.

The La Follette School welcomed more than 300 people to its inaugural La Follette Forum, funded by the Kohl Initiative, on Monday, March 2.

What a difference a year has made – 10 exceptional faculty, 19 outstanding certificate program graduates, 350 dedicated health policy leaders, three enthusiastic staff, and so much more. Simply put, the La Follette School of Public Affairs at UW–Madison is experiencing the most extensive growth in its 37-year history.
