UW-Platteville to offer free PMI® memberships to students

PMI and UW-Platteville Logos

Starting this May, the University of Wisconsin-Platteville will participate in the Group Student Membership plan offered by the Project Management Institute (PMI®). This collaboration provides free PMI memberships for all degree-seeking students in the Master of Science in Project Management program, and all other non-MSPM students enrolled in PROJMGT-prefixed courses.  

The program is only available to PMI-accredited institutions, reaffirming the university’s commitment to preparing students for the highly demanded field of project management. Each student membership includes online access to all PMI standards and practice guide publications, including the widely-known PMBOK® Guide, as well as PMI’s new digital content portal (PMIstandards+), which includes many more templates, articles and other material students will find useful for both classroom work and professional practice.

“We are always looking for opportunities to add value to the MS Project Management degree here at UW-Platteville,” said Program Director Bill Haskins.  “This new group membership will give all our project management students access to the many resources curated by PMI, for project management practitioners worldwide.”

This development follows UW-Platteville’s recent reaffirmation with the Project Management Institute Global Accreditation Center for Project Management Education Programs (GAC) for its MSPM program, renewed through 2027. Learn more about the degree program here
