Student Profiles

  • Andrew Merluzzi, MPA

    La Follette has incredible faculty who have provided me insight into the ways in which science can be changed – whether through economics, management, or incentive structures. Those are all possible levers to be pulled when thinking about policy change, and without the faculty and La Follette it’s hard to imagine understanding the true breadth of possible policy routes to take.

Alumni Profiles

  • The La Follette School Class of 2016 chose Alisha Bower as graduation speaker.
