Why a Dissertation Boot Camp?
Dissertation boot camps are effective in helping graduate students establish and practice the habits of good writing. They provide a quiet work space, a clear schedule for writing, and peer support. Our CWRU-specific goals are not only to help create a sense of community among the graduate students across campus, but also to encourage students to recognize and develop their writing processes, and to learn and put into practice strategies that will help them to finish projects in the future.
