Dissertation Bootcamp is an online resource for graduate students beginning to plan and conceptualize their thesis or dissertation or actively working on their thesis or dissertation after reaching candidacy. You are welcome to browse through the various sections for resources and information. This is not intended to replace in-person programs but serves to enhance your dissertation writing.
Graduate Writing Circles (virtual and in-person)
The Graduate Writing Circle provides community, accountability, and a dedicated time for all graduate students to gather with peers to work independently either in-person or virtually. Students have shared that co-working has helped to increase their motivation, set S.M.A.R.T. goals, and reduce a sense of isolation.
- In-person every Thursday, 9 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. and 1 to 4 p.m. Starting September 21, join for part of the day or for the entire day! Meet in Walwood Hall, East Campus. Coffee, tea, and light snacks provided.
- Virtual Writing Circle every Monday, 1 to 4 p.m. Starting September 11, supplement your writing time with a virtual option or join if you are remote and cannot attend the in-person circles.
