All students are required to write a dissertation proposal and to submit it to their committee one week prior to a public discussion. The Graduate Coordinator will post notice of the meeting and email copies to STEM faculty and students. A public discussion will be held to provide feedback and suggestions on the proposal.

Complete an EDI statement

Students are required to write an Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) statement detailing how their teaching, service, and/or scholarship has (or will) addressed these issues. Students will be asked to imagine that they’re applying for an ideal position of their choice and write a 1-page statement, which will be submitted to their dissertation committee along with their dissertation proposal, and will then be reviewed and approved of by their dissertation committee at the student’s dissertation proposal defense.
