Dissertation Retreat

Our Dissertation Retreats, co-sponsored by The Graduate School, help you to make bursts of significant progress toward completion of major projects.

Retreats are not instructional workshops.  Rather, they provide
•    An intensive writing environment
•    A quiet, comfortable writing space
•    Accountability with peer support
•    Productive dialogue about writing processes
•    Light refreshments 
A minimum of four dissertation retreats are held each year:
•    Fall Semester, Finals Week
•    Spring Semester, Week before classes
•    Spring Break
•    Summer  (may be longer or multiple retreats in Summer)
