The Dissertation Writing Institute is an 8-week writing program that meets in the Spring term for graduate students whose research is complete or nearly complete, who have conceptualized the principal elements of the dissertation, and who have already begun to write the dissertation.

Writing Groups

Interdisciplinary, student-led writing groups that provide structured support in a facilitated peer-based setting to aid dissertators working through long-term projects.

The Fellows Seminar brings together graduate student instructors (Junior Fellows) and faculty (Senior Fellows) from multiple disciplines who share a commitment to integrating writing in their courses and discussing critical issues in the teaching of writing.
