Webinar: Crossing the Finish Line: Strategies to Support Doctoral Completion
    October 21, 2019

    Advanced doctoral students—along with their institutions-- have already made significant investments in their degrees. Yet advanced candidacy is a common time for burnout, doubts about career goals, and stress. Learn what leading institutions are doing to help their doctoral students successfully cross the finish line. This webinar will pay particular attention to support for underrepresented students. Featuring presentations by Janet C. Rutledge (University of Maryland, Baltimore County) and Jan Allen (Cornell University). The broadcasting of this webinar presentation was sponsored in part by DoctoralNet.
