Who are we?

We are a group of physics graduate students at UW-Madison working to improve the well-being and success of graduate students in the Department of Physics.

How can I help?

Students: you can participate in or help organize one of many activities we plan to host this year. Consider joining one or more of our four committees if you would like to get involved.

Non-students (e.g. faculty, alumni): reach out to one of the officers if you have something in mind. We’re eager to collaborate!

Got an idea for an activity you think the PGSC should host? Get in touch with one of the officers!
