Inaugural NSBE Thesis & Dissertation House Brought to You by Purdue University

The Dissertation House was developed to help students progress through the difficult writing stages of the dissertation process, towards its completion. This is a multi-day (9 a.m. to 5 p.m.) commitment to focus on the dissertation. The Dissertation House activities focus on places where students typically have problems: conceptualizing a topic, developing a pre-proposal, writing a literature review, writing a proposal, analyzing data, writing the last chapter, and editing. Spots are limited. Continental breakfast, lunch, and light snacks will be provided for both days. Apply TODAY!
