Record high attendance at Writing Boot Camp

This year’s Proposal, Thesis and Dissertation Writing Boot Camp went virtual and broke records. Nearly 400 writers from 50 institutions joined this year's immersive Boot Camp to develop productive writing habits in a supportive environment. The previous virtual attendance record was set with over 300 students attending 2021 Writing Boot Camp; the record for in-person Boot Camp was in 2019 with 72 students gathering in person at Cornell’s Big Red Barn Graduate and Professional Student Center.

Associate Dean for Academic and Student Affairs Jan Allen has hosted Boot Camp each year since starting the program in 2013. Students can participate for four, five or six days, during which they attend group meetings, receive individual coaching and write alongside fellow students.
