Ann Drazkowski wants to do something about the extreme inequality and poverty she has seen. The first-year student brings to La Follette School a blend of domestic and international experience in social policy.
Because Maria Serakos wants her research to make a difference in public policy, she is pursuing a Master of Public Affairs degree at the La Follette School before she goes on to a Ph.D. program.

The hour-long public event begins at 4:30 p.m. in the School of Education Building's Wisconsin Idea Room. A reception will follow the seminar.
