The La Follette School of Public Affairs is hosting a reception for alumni, friends, faculty, students, and staff Thursday, November 3, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Clyde’s of Gallery Place in Washington, D.C.
Earlier that day, 20 La Follette School students will participate in the two-day La Follette in D.C. career development program. La Follette in D.C. will include visits to public and private sector organizations working on domestic and international policy issues. With financial support from La Follette School alumni, students will get a glimpse of the high-impact work happening in DC and have the opportunity to network with alumni and friends.
“We are extremely grateful to the La Follette family of alumni and friends who support our students through mentoring, job-search assistance, and financial contributions,” said La Follette School Director Don Moynihan. “More than 200 alumni and friends of the La Follette School live in the D.C. area, and we hope to see many of them at the reception.”
The La Follette School also is partnering with UW–Madison’s Institute for Research on Poverty (IRP) for a reception Friday, November 4 during the Association of Public Policy Analysis and Management (APPAM) conference from November 3 to 5. IRP, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary, recently received a five-year, $9.5 million cooperative agreement to serve as the national Poverty Research Center.
