The La Follette School of Public Affairs’ 2017 Madison reception for alumni and friends is scheduled for Thursday, February 2 at The Madison Club, 5 East Wilson Street.
La Follette School student Andrew Merluzzi has been selected for the 2017 Christine Mirzayan Science and Technology Policy Graduate Fellowship Program sponsored by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine.
La Follette has incredible faculty who have provided me insight into the ways in which science can be changed – whether through economics, management, or incentive structures. Those are all possible levers to be pulled when thinking about policy change, and without the faculty and La Follette it’s hard to imagine understanding the true breadth of possible policy routes to take.
La Follette School students benefitted from generous La Follette School alumni and other public policy professionals who participated in mock interviews Tuesday, November 1. The activity is one aspect of the Professional Development Workshop course (PA 800), a requirement for first-semester students.
As the 2016 presidential election draws near, five La Follette School faculty members shared their expertise on several key policy issues with more than 30 students, staff, and colleagues Tuesday. The hour-long discussion was part of the Public Affairs Seminar (PA 802) course.
Former Wisconsin Gov. Jim Doyle and 11 La Follette School students chatted about the upcoming election and a wide range of policy issues October 27 during an informal gathering at Union South.
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.
The classmates and professors I’ve met are some of the smartest, most reflective, and most passionate people I have known.
