Dissertation Process

The dissertation will be comprised of 5 chapters, however, research methods and resulting recommendations will be appropriate for the actual problem presented. Dissertation topics will be based around “real” problems and could be derived from student experiences or through client proposals/interactions in ADM 900: Clinical Practice I—P-20 Leadership.

Dissertation committees will be comprised of the student’s dissertation consultant, a client or P-20 partner representative and appropriate faculty. Student support will be leveraged through the learning communities within the dissertation seminars.
