The Writing Center: Dissertation Chair Essentials

Dissertation Chair Essentials

This series of presentations is being held in spring 2022  in response to student requests for a more consistent experience in the dissertation process. Academic Affairs has determined that these sessions will be required for all faculty who chair dissertations, although department chairs may choose to allow individual faculty members to participate in 2 of the 3 sessions based on their level of  experience.

All sessions have been recorded to allow  future viewing by those unable to participate live.
