UH Dissertation Accelerator Spring 2023 In-Person

The Graduate School is excited to collaborate once more with the UH Writing Center to host the Dissertation Accelerator event in-person Spring 2023 Dissertation Accelerator Flyer. This free program is open to only doctoral students who would like the opportunity to make serious progress on a dissertation. Participants will be required to attend the entire duration of the event. The support you will receive throughout beyond the 4 days will hopefully assist you in meeting or exceeding your writing goals. Additionally, the Dissertation Accelerator provides a highly productive uninterrupted work environment to be held on campus at the UH Writing Center.

What should I expect at Dissertation Accelerator?

  • Space with minimal distractions
  • Writing regimen/routine
  • Peer collaboration, motivation, and support
  • Guest speakers

*    I attended the dissertation accelerator in-person, I was so thrilled to see it back on-campus again. If you have not attended this event in-person it is a must! I made a lot of progress and was able to form a writing group! Thank you Graduate School and Writing Center for hosting!   https://uwm.edu/graduateschool/wp-content/uploads/sites/519/2020/11/quote-mark-end.png
