Support for the dissertation will begin with the first course and culminate with completion of the dissertation at the end of the third year. All formats require a research base as the foundation for the dissertation.
The guide is intended to assist both advisors and doctoral students in designing and implementing a dissertation process which will meet the requirements of the Doctorate in Community College Leadership while providing a framework for preparing students to address issues and concerns they will meet in their professional lives.
The guide comprises four major sections: Description and Rationale; Student/Advisor Responsibilities; Prospectus/Proposal/Dissertation Elements; Dissertation Checklist.
