Support groups for dissertating students

UW-Madison Health Services Counseling and Consultation Services offers several support groups for students currently engaged in the dissertation process. We encourage you to distribute this information to students in your department who are or will be dissertating.

The dissertation support groups help students initiate, conduct and complete their dissertation, thesis or other large academic project. Issues that are frequently discussed include time and anxiety management, emotional and academic support and goal setting. These groups are not therapy groups, but support groups for dissertators. All efforts are made to maintain complete confidentiality.

Group times for the Fall 2007 semester are:

  • Tuesdays 3:30-5:00
  • Wednesdays 12:00-1:30
  • Fridays 1000-1130

Please inform your students about these successful groups. For more information, contact Jeffrey Hird at 608.265.5479 or
