Graduate Writing Residency Program

The purpose of the Graduate Writing Residency Program (WRP) is to help students make substantial progress toward completion of their master's or doctoral thesis/project/dissertation; increase knowledge about required elements of a thesis/project/dissertation appropriate to academic discipline; improve research/scholarly writing skills; and increase confidence in research/scholarly writing skills. A small cohort of graduate students will work with a writing coach over four meetings to make progress on their writing goals.

There are two (2) program cohorts offered this fall semester. Consult the WRP cohort schedules to learn more, and apply below.

Deadline to submit an application for both WRP cohorts is Monday, September 19th at noon.

Thesis/Project/Dissertation Formatting Workshop & Open Sessions

The workshop will focus on the University's preparation guidelines for a master's thesis or project and doctoral dissertation. A review of the organization of the thesis/dissertation will be presented and sample layouts examined from the online thesis/dissertation template. Formatting tips and problem areas will be discussed, as well as the process for submitting the thesis, project, or disseration.

The open session is a drop-in session for hands-on assistance in using the online template when formatting your thesis, project, or dissertation.
