Visiting Campus

If you'd like to visit UW-Madison, consult the UW Campus and Visitor Relations website for information about directions, accommodations, tours and more.

Jim Miller, graduate programs coordinator for the Nelson Institute, meets with prospective graduate students by appointment and is happy to discuss the nuances of our degree programs, the admissions process, tips for finding faculty advisors and funding, and how your interests might fit in the Nelson Institute. To make an appointment with Jim, call (608) 263-4373 or send an email.

If you are interested in meeting with a current Nelson Institute student during your visit, Jim can also connect you with a graduate student mentor.

Prospective students looking for faculty advisors should contact professors directly to arrange meetings. The Academic Programs Office does not schedule appointments with professors for prospective students.
