Spring Dissertation Intensive

All Listed Times are ET


The dissertation writing intensive is a virtual experience designed to support students who are currently working on dissertations in the Antioch University Ph.D. in Leadership and Change program. 

The dissertation writing intensive is available to any Ph.D. candidate (you must be in candidacy) who wishes to allocate protected time over a dedicated period of (10) consecutive days toward working on any aspect or phase of his or her dissertation. You can be in any stage of the dissertation, from proposal to final draft. 

Very important: Prior to signing up for the dissertation writing intensive, students must consult with their dissertation chair regarding their participation. The dissertation chair will work with the student to establish concrete, realistic, and constructive goals for dissertation progress during the 10-day intensive. 


The purpose of this writing intensive is to facilitate the habitual focus, peer support, and accountability systems that help to sustain momentum during dissertation writing. The cornerstone of this experience is the peer support small group format; participants will meet regularly with a small group of peers who are also dedicated to making consistent progress on their dissertations over the 10-day period, with strategic one-hour check-ins scheduled over the course of the days.  Although peer-focused, a trained facilitator (Writing Center Director Elaine Gale) helps to plans the Intensive.
