Student Profiles

  • Jonathan Harper, MPA

    As a public school teacher, I became frustrated with how much policy constrained my work in the classroom and decided to work toward giving teachers a voice to advocate for their students’ needs. I want to work to close the divide between best practices and actual practices in the field of education.

Alumni Profiles

  • Kavan Kucko (MIPA '08)

    At the La Follette School, I learned how to work with and manage large data sets and manipulate them with statistics. I use those skills every day.
