Meetings with Applied Dissertation Chairs*
One of the highlights of the summer conference is the one-on-one meeting that each student has with his or
her dissertation committee chair. With much of the doctoral program being online, these face-to-face meetings
give students the opportunity to develop a rapport with the person with whom they will be working throughout
the dissertation process.The student and chair will work on content-related aspects of the dissertation. These
meetings are scheduled in advance by dissertation committee chairs and will convene on Thursday at times
indicated in the daily schedule in Ballroom of the Americas A and Fantasia Ballroom G–H. Appointments will
be scheduled in 55-minute intervals.
*You must have a prearranged appointment if you wish to speakwith your dissertation chair.
