The La Follette School Student Association is launching a penny war on Tuesday, October 14, to raise money for Doctors without Borders through the university's Partners in Giving campaign.
Mother Nature saved some of the summer’s best weather for the La Follette School’s annual Hill Fest celebration. Atop Observatory Hill and under blue skies, more than 120 students, alumni, friends, faculty, and staff marked the start of the 2016–17 academic year with a picnic dinner and enthusiastic conversations.
The La Follette School’s David Wright-Racette received the Student Personnel Association (SPA) Frontline Award for his efforts as the school’s student services associate on April 25. Mo O’Connor, Wright-Racette’s supervisor, coordinated his nomination and had the pleasure of presenting his award at the 39th Annual SPA Awards Luncheon in front of numerous La Follette School colleagues and approximately 250 higher education professionals in Madison.
La Follette School staff member David Wright-Racette served on the search and screen committee for the next dean and director of UW–Madison’s Division of Extension. On April 28, UW–Madison Chancellor Rebecca Blank announced the hiring of Karl Martin, who joined Extension in 2014.
