About the Dissertation Success Program
The Dissertation Success Program is designed for doctoral candidates who are focused on finishing their dissertation. The program is built on the assumption that there is only one way to complete a dissertation: write it!
While that sounds simple, there are three common reasons that graduate students struggle to complete dissertations:
- and isolation.
The program teaches students how to navigate around these barriers in the context of a supportive community. Participants in the Dissertation Success Program will learn to:
- Develop and maintain a daily writing routine
- Systematically plan weekly writing goals
- Understand the writing process
- Develop positive writing rituals
- Identify and overcome academic perfectionism
- Track research and writing time for ongoing self-assessment
- Belong to a community of supportive and productive academic writers
- Create a local and extended network of mentors for long-term success
The Dissertation Success Program includes:
- 12 Weeks of Access to our DSP Online Community
- 12 Weekly Training Videos with Kerry Ann Rockquemore, PhD
- Monthly Live Group Mentoring Calls with Faculty Mentors and Writing Coaches who will take your questions
