Writing for Publication Workshop
The Graduate College's Graduate Center for Research and Retention piloted a new workshop for doctoral students in November 2006. The Writing for Publication Workshop took place from November 2 - 5 in Walwood Hall and offered students an environment conducive to the quiet reflection necessary to writing scholarly articles generated from their dissertation proposals. The workshop, conducted by Dr. Lawrence Schlack, associate professor emeritus from the College of Education, provided students with strategies to ensure success in publishing their work and advancing their careers. Another workshop is planned for March 2007.
