About the Doctoral Support Center for Writing & Research Excellence

The Doctoral Support Center for Writing & Research Excellence (DSC) was created in the Fall of 2014 as an innovative solution to address the burgeoning demands of academic writing support for doctoral students in the College of Education at Texas Tech University (TTU-COE). This support is offered online and face-to-face to meet the needs of all doctoral students. The DSC offers comprehensive support with academic writing tasks leading up to the dissertation that include assignments for coursework, proposals for human research protection, dissertation proposals, and dissertations. The DSC also provides motivational support for students through activities such as writing workshops and rallies. Essentially, the DSC provides "wrap-around" support for students from start to finish in their doctoral programs. The primary goal of the DSC is to assist students in the successful attainment of their doctoral degree.
