Summer Dissertation Writing Retreat

May 21, 2018 - 10:00 AM to May 24, 2018 - 4:00 PM
Center for Graduate Life, Cone 268

Dates of Retreat:  Monday, May 21 - Thursday, May 24: 10:00am-4:00pm 
The Dissertation Writing Retreat provides a multi-day opportunity for doctoral students to devote focused time and attention to one goal: making progress on their dissertations. The writing retreat offers a quiet space to work, structured writing time, and writing-related resources and support because all participants are actively engaged in writing their dissertations. The retreat also serves to decrease the sense of isolation that many doctoral students feel during the dissertation process.

A non-refundable registration fee which covers costs related to supplies and instruction is required. Please see the three-tiered fee structure below. Payment must be received by Wednesday, May 16. Submit via web link or the mobile-friendly site.
