I am excited to announce the first ever on-campus Dissertation House this Summer! This means that interested UMB students do not need to travel to UMBC or UMCP to attend. You can just walk from your lab to the SMC Campus Center. UMB Dissertation House will be on June 28-30 (M, T, W). Applications are accepted June 1-7. Please see attached flyer for details on how to apply. Applications must be complete. Seats are limited! Feel free to invite your colleagues who may benefit from attending Dissertation House.

UMB Dissertation House is cosponsored by PROMISE and The Writing Center.

* REFLECTIONS: Movie Night – Thank you those who came and enjoyed “The Blind Side” with popcorn and other refreshments. As the academic year comes to a close, it was a great time to catch up and relax. Also, the movie inspires us to overcome setbacks, reach out in kindness to others, and excel in what we do!
