Dissertation Retreats

Winter 2022

Our next Graduate Writing Retreat will be offered during the Winter 2022 session. More details coming soon.

Offered during Winter and Summer sessions, Dissertation Retreats all participants to devote a week to working on their dissertation in the writing center.

Participants spend a majority of their time writing; however the program sometimes also includes discussions on topics relevant to dissertations students, including motivation, goal setting, and time management. 

Participants benefit from the structure of daily writing sessions and the social support of other participants to facilitate progress on their dissertation. They do not receive feedback on their draft; rather, the Dissertation Retreat provides support for their writing process
