Student Success Center to Offer Dissertation Writing Retreats
Students writing dissertations have an additional form of support this summer. University Writing Services, housed within the Student Success Center, will offer Dissertation Writing Retreat.
The three-day retreat will be offered twice during the summer so that as many students as possible can attend. Dates are June 16-18 and June 30-July 2.
Open to graduate students from across campus, the retreat will offer structured time to write, writing strategies and one-on-one feedback for select attendees. Both sessions of the retreat will be held in Kelley Auditorium.
Sign-up for the retreat at the University Writing Services Calendar and Events page.
Each agenda for the retreat will feature writing guidance in the morning and structured time to write in the afternoon. Topics will include writing habits, setting goals and formatting. Participants will also be able to provide input concerning the agenda prior to the retreat.
Each day, five participants will be able to receive a half-hour of individualized feedback from the director of University Writing Services. These feedback sessions will take place in the afternoon. The first 15 graduate students to sign-up for each retreat and select the option of receiving this feedback, will be contacted to submit a dissertation chapter or a section of a dissertation chapter three weeks prior to the start of the retreat.
