UW-Madison’s IGPNS program promotes and values the individuality of all students and work to maintain a positive climate within our department, college, and university.
To connect to the campus-wide community or learn more about diversity at UW-Madison, visit the UW diversity website known as Creating Community.
Students entering and currently in IGPNS should familiarize themselves with the IGPNS Handbook. The Handbook covers the department policies, explains the process of the preliminary exam and final defense, resources for current students on and off campus, and more.
Each student will have an IGPNS Certification Form that is the official record of your progress toward completion of the degree requirements. Your major professor’s signature is required when you submit the Certification Form. This form is retained in the IGPNS files by the Grad Coordinator, but when you need it at various stages to update coursework and seminars, you can request a copy.
