Graduate Student Dissertation & Thesis Camp

About the Graduate Student Camp

The Graduate Dissertation Camp is designed to assist graduate students at all stages of their research and writing toward their degree or completion of a large-scale writing project. The Hesburgh Libraries, in partnership with the University Writing Center, provides community-building and time to help scholars focus on their own research and writing. The program is designed to move dissertating students toward the completion of their work. Participants will have the opportunity to:

  • jumpstart or move forward in their research and writing process
  • work in dedicated spaces in the Hesburgh Library
  • consult with their subject librarians
  • consult with University Writing Center tutors about their work
  • engage with colleagues in their own and other graduate divisions to learn best practices from peers
  • form communities of practice to engage in the camp process after its conclusion
