Yackee’s December letter highlights student support

In her December letter to alumni and friends, La Follette School Director and Professor Susan Webb Yackee reflected on the past year and looked forward to 2022.

Yackee highlighted the School’s growing academic programs, including the Undergraduate Certificate in Health Policy, which allow students to secure important jobs that help society.

“That is why our School’s top development priorities focus on financial support for La Follette School students,” she wrote.

The School also recently created an Equity, Diversity & Inclusion fund, which supports efforts to enhance diversity, promote equity and ensuring a welcoming and inclusive experience for students, faculty, and staff.
