Join the UWC for our new dissertation boot camp experience!

 

Based on models currently offered by Stanford University, University of Wisconsin – Madison, Yale University, and Claremont Graduate University, NIU’s University Writing Center will provide a space with minimal distractions for extended writing (approximately 5 hours per day) among peers who are traveling the same journey. UWC writing coaches will be available in the afternoon to discuss your project and provide support, feedback, motivation, and accountability.
