A weekly support group for doctoral students working on their dissertation. The dissertation process can be difficult and lonely, and no one needs to struggle alone.

Through this group, you will receive support from others going through a similar experience, develop mechanisms for accountability, and gain a better understanding of what is getting in the way of your work.
