Robert M. La Follette School of Public Affairs

The Robert M. La Follette School of Public Affairs at the University of Wisconsin–Madison is a highly ranked program that attracts outstanding students from across the United States and around the world to its highly respected graduate programs in public affairs and international public affairs, and dual-degree programs. Students are admitted in comparatively small numbers that encourage cooperation across cohorts and permit the La Follette School faculty to know, advise, and mentor students.

Students arrive with a passion for public affairs and a commitment to public service. They graduate with the requisite skills, knowledge, contacts, and experience to transform passion and commitment into meaningful careers.


We are happy to set up an individual visit for you. Your visit can include meetings with the Admissions Coordinator, the Associate Director, and a current student, a campus tour, and attendance in a La Follette class. Please contact Jennifer Donahoe in order to set up your visit.
