Dissertation Retreats

Image Picker for Section 0
Summer 2019


All Summer 2019 Dissertation Retreats are now full. To ask to be put on the waiting list for either the July or August retreat, please email Dr. Follett at

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. 

Students gain access to space, and the structure to facilitate progress on their dissertation. They do not receive feedback on their draft; rather, the Dissertation Retreat provides support for their writing process

There will be three Dissertation Retreats held during Summer 2019:

Retreat 1: June 17-21 (application due June 2, applicants notified about acceptance June 3)

Retreat 2: July 8-12 (application due June 23, applicants notified about acceptance June 24)

Retreat 3: August 5-9 (application due July 21, applicants notified about acceptance July 22)

Coffee will be served in the morning, lunch will be served at 12pm, and snacks will be available all day.

Most participants bring their own laptop or tablet to work on. We have plenty of extension cords. We will be able to accommodate a few students in each Retreat who need to use a Writing Center computer.
