Please note I’ve withheld the details of this situation to avoid repercussions from the university.
I am earning my doctorate. My dissertation is written. My defense was set for Tuesday, March 6, 2012 (yes, tomorrow). Even though I am well-prepared and my committee finds my work to be defense worthy, due to circumstances beyond my control, I am unable to hold my defense as scheduled and as publicly announced. (The official defense will be held at a later date.)
Instead of a defense, there will be a celebration and presentation of my research on connecting industry, community, and academia through the experiential, project-based initiative, CreateAthon onCampus at Chattanooga.
You’re invited to join us on Tuesday, March 6th at 5pm in room 413 in the Fine Arts Center.
