Robert M. La Follette School of Public Affairs

In addition to UW–Madison’s Spring Commencement, the La Follette School celebrates Graduation in the Assembly Chambers of the Wisconsin Capitol in May. 

The La Follette School Student Association (LSSA) coordinates the ceremony, and students select the student speaker, faculty speaker, and commencement speaker. Family members and friends are invited to sit in the balcony. 

Each graduate receives a certificate from the La Follette School, and faculty present awards to some of the top students.

Information about cap and gown rental or purchase is available from the University Book Store
