Dissertation House @UMBC & Dissertation Retreat @UMDGradSchool – Oct. 16-17, + Blogging for all!


October brings dissertation writing opportunities for all! UMBC has a Dissertation House, and UM College Park has a Dissertation Writing Retreat! If you aren’t at either of those schools, you can blog your progress and join the conversation online: https://dissertationhouse.wordpress.com/blog-online-challenge/summerdh2015/

 

For the event at UMBC

If you are an employee of UMBC (50% time or more) or a “Non-Traditional” student, and if you are working on your graduate school courses, proposal, or dissertation, then this event is for you!

 

Eligibility:

  • You can be in a graduate program at any school, and are currently a working, career professional at UMBC.
  • You are a career professional at one of the other schools within the USM, and are a current graduate student at UMBC

We’ve worked with our UMBC employees who are also graduate students at UMBC, College Park, Northeastern, and other institutions.  This session will have support, coaching, and food will be provided for you on both days.

You work hard every day to serve others on our campus! You may be supporting your family members, or you have decided to take some time for yourself to reach your goals.  Now, let us work with you to finish your graduate degree. This version of the “Dissertation House” was created just for you!
