Elizabeth Doyle (MPA ’17) won an uncontested election for District 1 of the Dane County Board of Supervisors in June. Doyle replaced Mary Kolar, who is now serving as secretary for the Wisconsin Department of Veterans Affairs in Governor Tony Evers’ administration.
The client-based project aspect of many courses has helped me develop better communication, time management, and team-working skills.
The La Follette School of Public Affairs is seeking client proposals for its fall 2019 Cost-Benefit Analysis (CBA) course. Graduate students in the course work in teams on a real-world issue for an actual client, providing excellent learning opportunities for students and useful products for clients.
The analytical skills-based approach to teaching in coordination with the small class sizes have been hugely beneficial to my personal and professional career goals.
The people at La Follette really make a difference. Each student I have met at this school exudes a level of friendship and willingness to help that you would be hard pressed to find at other schools, especially grad programs. La Follette captures everything amazing about UW-Madison with the added benefit of an exceptional policy school based in a state capital.
