Are you in Pittsburgh? Come to our Dissertation House Seminars @CarnegieMellon 3/27 & 3/28


You may think that you’re not ready to make preparations for your proposal or dissertation, but at PROMISE, we believe that it is never too early to start thinking about how to communicate your research.  This week, regardless of your year in graduate school, 1st to final, come and join us! We are hosting a Dissertation House in Pittsburgh on the campus of Carnegie Mellon University.  In addition to hosting the students who applied in advance to be in-residence for the multi-day sessions of the full-scale Dissertation House, we invite graduate students in Pittsburgh to our “open sessions.”  All graduate students (all disciplines, all backgrounds, all levels) at CMU, the University of Pittsburgh, local campuses, along with visiting graduate students who are coming to town for the national NSBE conference or the NSBE Graduate School Conference (GSC) are invited to attend our  open (free) workshops and consultation hours.
