"SOTA’s holistic (mind, body, soul) approach put me in the right ‘space’ to write. From the BootCamp®, I made great progress on a research article that was later published. And as if that was not enough, I also gained the support of a great group of Black women academics!" --Dr. Chavella Pittman, 2007 Research BootCamp© participant
The biennial Research BootCamp© is an intense, one-week program designed to help doctoral students and junior scholars develop sound research agendas. Senior scholars, statisticians, and theorists facilitate workshops intended to help doctoral students conceptualize and design components of their dissertations including research questions/hypotheses, literature review, instrumentation, methodology and data analysis.
These senior scholars also assist junior scholars in the development of manuscripts for publication. In addition to the research component, each participant is linked with a junior or senior scholar mentor to help cultivate a mentoring relationship.
