January 2017 Thesis & Dissertation Retreat

December 5, 2016

The Graduate School will host a Thesis & Dissertation Retreat during winter break, from January 9-13, 2017, to support students working on extended writing projects.

The Thesis & Dissertation Retreat offers participants time to write along with presentations about setting goals, structuring writing time, and addressing obstacles that may complicate progress toward completion.  Participants may also meet with Graduate School Writing Center Fellows for one-on-one consultations about their writing. Participants must have an approved prospectus or thesis topic and must commit to attending each day.  The retreat will be Monday-Friday, from 10am-4pm each day.  

Space in the retreat is limited to 25 students.   A $40 fee (to cover meals and refreshments) will be required to secure a place.
