The Center for Excellence in Writing (CEW) and University Graduate School (UGS) hosted the December Dissertation Writing Retreat for 11 doctoral students.

Students represented a variety of disciplines such as psychology, marketing, teaching and learning, dietetics and nutrition, international crime and justice, politics and international relations, biology, social work and epidemiology.

Throughout the week, participants set daily goals with the Center’s directors and worked on their dissertations. A graduate writing tutor from the Center was available for consultations. The week concluded with a visit from UGS representatives to discuss the submission process.

The Center and UGS offer Friday writing circles for students during the spring semester. Please contact ugs@fiu.edu or (305) 348-2455 for more application information.
