    Public service is one of the most important ways we can bring about social changes and improve the economic and political state of our country.

Alumni Profiles

  • Alexis MacDonald (MPA ’08)

    I chose the La Follette School because its commitment to practicing the Wisconsin Idea really resonated with me. I was drawn to UW-Madison’s longstanding commitment to extending its expertise beyond campus borders to solve problems and make positive changes throughout the state, the nation, and the world.
