Research BootCamp




"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 BootCamp® Participant

The biennial Research BootCamp® is an intense, one-week program designed to help doctoral students and junior scholars develop sound research projects. Senior Scholars as statisticians, methodologists, and theorists facilitate workshops intended to help doctoral students conceptualize and design components of their dissertations (i.e, formulating research questions or hypotheses, developing literature review, selecting instrumentation, designing methodology, and completing data analysis).

The Senior Scholars also assist junior scholars in the development of manuscripts for publication and advisement for tenure and promotion. In addition to the research component, every participant is encouraged to cultivate a mentoring relationship.

Registration for the 2017 Research BootCamp is now closed.

The next SOTA Research Boot Camp will be held July 30 - August 5, 2017 at Florida State University in Tallahassee, Fl.
