Thesis/Dissertation Accelerator (Deadline to apply Dec 8th!)
January 8, 2018 - January 12, 2018Free
This is a five-day intensive event for graduate students wishing to progress quickly on their theses and dissertations between semesters. The Writing Center will provide help with goal setting and accountability, and a variety of KU staff will be available for individual, specialized consultations on a range of topics: writing, goal setting and creating accountability, field-specific research, database research and locating sources, EndNote, Zotero, and thesis/dissertation formatting. Students will benefit from coaching, encouragement, and plenty of quiet time to write during these five days. Participants are required to attend the morning session each day but may stay and continue writing during the optional afternoon sessions. This event is open to all graduate students drafting their masters theses, master projects, or doctoral dissertations. It is capped at 30 students. The event is free of charge and includes lunch each day.
