Doctoral Graduation Dates:
Henceforth, all students intending to graduate in the Spring or in the Fall should formally secure a confirmed dissertation defense date that falls no later than 2 (TWO) weeks after midterm of the semester in which they plan to graduate. Therefore, you must make sure that your dissertation chair, in consultation with the committee members, have formally approved your readiness for defense. Please note that this deadline will apply until we notify you of any changes; no exceptions will be accommodated. Plan accordingly as you must have a very good quality draft of the complete dissertation, in the semester prior to the planned graduation one.
Congratulations to Dr. Linda Wilson-Jones and Dr. Gail Thompson, and colleagues on their recent launch of a new Academic Journal: The Journal of Research Initiatives
