AMIC offers Honorary Associate appointments to our members!

UW-Madison honorary fellow Dr. Kevin Nelson from Amcor talking with MRSEC students at the AMIC annual event

As your AMIC director, I often get these questions from UW alumni or industry partners, “I need to conduct a literature review to dive deeper into my research, but I cannot access the UW-Madison library system as before, help!”

If you are already an AMIC member company, seek no further!  A UW-Madison honorary associate zero-dollar appointment allows you to access our university’s vast library resources, collaborate with our  faculty, and take part in MRSEC-related meetings and campus programming.  And, you may simply enroll one researcher from your company per year as part of your membership.

We are in the process of renewing previous honorary associate appointments, and I encourage you take advantage of this important membership benefit as well.  If  interested, please contact me at, and submit the following information to MRSEC Assistant Administrative director Kerri Phillips at Appointments run October 1 through September 30:

  • Current CV
  • Previous UW system employment
  • Birthdate
  • Gender
  • Ethnicity
  • W9s (Please call Kerri to share your SSN due to its sensitive data attribute)
  • W9 mailing address

We look forward to enabling you to become an honorary fellow at UW-Madison!
