The Graduate Resource Center provides academic support, professional development, and community-building opportunities in a space dedicated to graduate students. We guide students through writing, editing, and formatting the thesis and dissertation and assist in preparing their work for publication; host workshops and presentations to support students’ academic and professional development; and act as a general resource for graduate student needs. We strive to arm graduate students with the tools required in the next steps of their academic and professional journeys.

Thesis Support

Students who complete a culminating project, such as a thesis or dissertation, file their finished manuscript with the University via our office. Our staff assists students with the format review, and we provide additional support in the form of workshops:

  • Getting Started on the Thesis
  • Thesis Formatting & Submission
