Navigating the UNLV Graduate College T/D Process Part 1: IRB & Formatting


Sep. 28, 2021, 3:30pm to 5pm

Office/Remote Location



The culminating work of a graduate student is an opportunity for students to highlight their area of expertise and research interests. Depending on your area of study, masters or doctoral students are offered a variety of final project options, however the most common culminating work is known as a thesis or dissertation. Both a thesis and dissertation require original research and must adhere to protocol outlined by the Office of Research Integrity. Once a thesis or dissertation is complete, it is submitted to the Graduate College, submitted to iThenticate, and published on ProQuest. All thesis and dissertations, regardless of area of study, must adhere to the formatting guidelines as established by the Graduate College. Join us for this two-part workshop to learn more about the T/D Process. Part 1 will focus on IRB & Formatting. By participating in this workshop you will:
