This site collects advice and resources for students in both PhD  programs at the University of Michigan Mathematics  department. The advice is generated by both students and faculty, and is maintained by Professor Karen Smith, who is currently the Associate Chair for Graduate Studies and served as chair of the (pure math) Doctoral Committee for over 10 years before that. The information here is not official math department policy. These are resources gathered by and the opinions of many people who care and know something about being a graduate student and/or mentor of one in math at UM.
