Do you like policy? Do you like talking about public policy? Do you regularly think about local, state, national, or global policy solutions? Do you wonder how implementation and public administration can improve?
If you answered ‘yes’ to any or all of these questions, there is a good chance you are a La Follette student or connected to the public affairs program. That is, after all, why this blog was created: to discuss, ponder, and relay thoughts about current issues in public policy in a forum directed towards other interested individuals. We have the added benefit of being able to post LSSA (La Follette School Student Association) messages to our scattered student body.
If you answered ‘yes’ to any or all of these questions, please consider joining the La Flog Team. We could use:
- Editors: our peers willing to check grammar and spelling to ensure the quality of posting gets better. Editors could also make suggestions to their friends to contribute, as well as write their own stories and policy opinion pieces.
- Authors, Contributors, Columnists, Bloggers, etc : write on La Follette-related (loosely defined) topics. As you can see from posts this summer, almost no topic is off limits (social, events, and satire, as well as policy analysis, news, economics, research, administration, ethics, books, heatlhcare, …)
This is the first year LSSA/La Follette is experimenting with a blog, so help shape how the blog develops! Jump up on this virtual soap-box and let your opinions on policy be read. The Wisconsin Idea suggests that the University consider its mission to aid policy-makers and the state through investigating areas of improvement and innovation – here we take that to the 21st century.
Think about it. Then join the La Flog Team. Tell us how you’d do policy. Join the dialog.
