UW–Madison Chancellor Rebecca Blank, a La Follette School faculty member, has been named a 2021 Distinguished Fellow by the American Economic Association, one of four economists to receive the honor this year.
La Follette School Director Susan Webb Yackee will moderate a livestreamed panel discussion about the 2021–2023 state budget at noon Friday, May 7. State Sens. Jon Erpenbach and Dale Kooyenga will participate along with Jason Stein, research director at the Wisconsin Policy Forum.
La Follette School faculty members Jason Fletcher, Yang Wang, and Christine Durrance received funding to support their research from UW–Madison’s Understanding and Reducing Inequalities Initiative. Their projects were among only 15 selected from 73 proposals.
The La Follette School welcomed more than 50 prospective graduate students March 22 for its second all-virtual Visit Day. More than three dozen faculty, staff, and students assisted with the event, which was organized by Marie Koko and David Wright-Racette.

The La Follette School convened legislators and staff to discuss how these social, economic, and physical environment factors—often called social determinants of health—affect Wisconsin families’ health. The discussions were part of the Continuing the Conversation series held after each Wisconsin Family Impact Seminar.
