Graduate Workshops


The Thesis Writers Retreat, May 14-16

The Thesis Writers Retreat is a three-day program which gives graduate students structured time to work on their thesis or other related writing project. Professional writing consultants, research librarians, and thesis formatters will be on hand to provide academic support on request. During structured writing time, students will have the option to attend hourly breakout sessions which will focus on topics ranging from plagiarism to literature reviews. All structured writing time will be followed by a casual presentation with free lunch.
