Finding time to concentrate and dedicate to dissertation writing can be difficult, so Kent State University's Division of Graduate Studies is offering its first Dissertation Boot Camp on March 10-12. The boot camp will provide dedicated space and time to allow participants to focus only on writing their dissertations.

Dissertation Boot Camp will give doctoral students:

  • A quiet space with computer access (or bring your own laptop)
  • Structured time to write
  • Access to writing experts from the Department of English
  • Meals throughout the entire weekend (in addition to plenty of coffee and snacks)
  • The opportunity to meet other doctoral students working on their dissertations
  • Resource materials related to research and writing

Priority deadline for registration is Monday, Feb. 27, at 11:59 p.m. The cost of Dissertation Boot Camp is $30. The program will be held at University Library on Friday, March 10, from 5-10 p.m.; Saturday, March 11, from 8 a.m.-10 p.m.; and Sunday, March 12, from 8 a.m.-5 p.m.
