Veep’s Viewpoint – 9/10/2010

The LSSA VP doesn’t have a lot of set duties. The person supports the president, handles policy roundtables, and now, manages La Flog.

La Flog is growing quickly. We have a significantly larger staff and more buy-in from new students. This site is quickly becoming a great tool for students at La Follette, just at Nate envisioned when he created it and as I hoped when I took over management. If you are new to La Flog, these posts provide context for its creation, goals, and an overview of other public affairs blogs.

This year we will have some exciting developments: a column on international affairs, greater submissions about campus goings-on,  updates about neuroscience and public policy, and much more. If you are interested in contributing in any way, send me an email at sjfredericks at wisc dot edu and I will get you set up with whatever you need. We had one La Flog staff meeting this week and we will have another at the end of the month to solidify roles. Let me know if you’d be interested in attending.

I hope your semester is getting off to a great start!

Sylvia Fredericks is LSSA VP until May 2011.
