Dissertation Success Program Q&A Call

Dissertation Success Program Q&A Call
Facilitator: Kerry Ann Rockquemore, PhD

We teach professors how to win tenure in our Faculty Success Program, but every year, graduate students have asked us for a program that is specifically designed for dissertation writers. We now offer a Dissertation Success Program for graduate students who are focused on finishing their dissertations. We’re clear that there is one way to complete a dissertation: write it! While that sounds simple, there are three common reasons that graduate students struggle to complete dissertations: 1) procrastination, 2) perfectionism and 3) 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
  • Build a local and extended network of mentors for long-term success
