Comet Calendar

In this workshop, we will review formatting requirements and address many of the common issues students have while working on their dissertations/theses in the Word template. We will walk through setting up the template and formatting the major sections before Chapter 1. Please have access to a computer with Word, a copy of the most recent version of our Word template downloaded to your computer, as well as your working dissertation/thesis manuscript. Our template can be found at:

NOTE: This workshop is intended for students using the Microsoft Word template, not the LaTex template.

This event can be attended in-person in Founders West Annex (FA) 2.206 or remotely via MS Teams.  Please register for this workshop here:
