Students and their major advisor's need to communicate goals and progress with each other, then provide this information on to the department for assessment. 

Please do this by or before June 30th each year you are here at

By now, the goal is in sight!

It is mandatory to let the WRGP and your advising department know that you will be defending. 

Let us know at least two weeks in advance ~~ but a month is recommended. 

This will also allow us enough time to schedule a room as well as promote your defense. 

The request form can be found here: Defense Information Request for WRGP.

Room Reservations:

Do to staffing shortage, we do ask that students attempt to find a room on their own first.  We will step in and assist if you are unsuccessful or have a particular room in mind.

If you intend on meeting in person: please make sure you choose a room with Zoom capabilities, so that your defense can be seen by anyone who can't attend.

Here are several locations that you can choose from!

  • Go online and find a classroom that meets your specific needs for the date/time of your defense. 

  • Then reach out to [email protected] and inform her which room you would like to use, the date of your defense, and times.

    • As a precaution, you are encouraged to give her two alternative rooms for this event, in the event she cannot secure your first choice.
