Professor Manuel P. Teodoro of the La Follette School was among the College of Letters & Science faculty celebrated during its annual Investiture Ceremony on November 10.

Dean Eric Wilcots recognized Teodoro as the recipient of the Robert F. and Sylvia T. Wagner Distinguished Faculty Award. In addition to the title, the award comes with research funds annually for five years so Teodoro can continue to pursue his cutting-edge research on the intersection of politics, public policy, and public management.

The Director of the La Follette School, Susan Webb Yackee, provided praise for Teodoro that was used during the ceremony:

“Dr. Manny Teodoro is one of the top scholars of the American public bureaucracy in the world.  His research investigates deep and theoretical questions about the political accountability of the bureaucracy within the U.S. system of governance, as well as applied, practical questions on such matters as water quality access for Wisconsinites. We are delighted to have a faculty member of his talent at the La Follette School—especially one, like Manny, who has a strong interest in sharing his research with the public.”
