Cal Poly

Thesis Coaching Clinic


Background

To help improve the thesis completion rates of Cal Poly Masters students, the Graduate Education office established a pilot thesis coaching clinic in the Winter/Spring quarters of 2015, and continued this program through the academic year 2015-16. Retired professor Dr. Erika Rogers provided customized one-on-one coaching with the goal of helping Masters students fulfill their thesis requirement. Approximately 70 students from 5 colleges and 27 departments have participated so far.
