La Follette School of Public Affairs

For 175 years, Badgers have been driven by public service, pushing beyond our boundaries, and solving society’s largest problems. We call this the Wisconsin Idea.

Students at the La Follette School are eager to make the world a better place by improving public policy and the practice of governance. Our graduates use evidence-based research and analysis to build solutions in their communities and across the world. Your Fill the Hill gift will support the next generation of leaders to work towards a better tomorrow.
