New federal regulations on financial conflicts of interest will be implemented across the United States on August 24. These regulations require the University of Wisconsin–Madison to make important adjustments to reporting and management of financial conflicts of interest. Because of the scope of changes in the new regulations, the UW-Madison campus community should become aware of these changes before August 24, university officials say. Learn more online about how these regulatory changes will affect faculty and staff.

Prospective students visiting the La Follette School on March 27 heard from alumni about their education and careers as part of an open house at the school.

For La Follette School alum Kate Battiato, a career is about relationships. Her internships led to paid positions that connected her with mentors and colleagues she met again when she went to work for the Legislature.
