Sofia University Conference Scholarship

Sofia University is honored to support our students with the newly established Sofia University Conference Scholarship. It is awarded to any student who presents at an academic conference. It is our hope that recognizing student efforts in this way will support ITP/Sofia's longstanding history of excellence in research.

Meet with the Dissertation Director - Ted Esser, Ph.D.

I'm here to answer any dissertation process questions that can't be answered by your Chair, the Dissertation Office Assistant or by the information found on this web page. It's my goal to help guide you through your journey with this final stage in your Sofia journey successfully.

Look at the Faculty Interest and Methods List below to choose your potential Chair and Committee Members from. Before you have chosen your Chair, your Academic Advisor also serves as a pre-dissertation phase advisor on dissertation matters. Once your Chair is approved, they become your advisor until you graduate.

Make sure you take a look at the Forms and Resources sections below. Many of your questions can be answered there. Please email dissertation@sofia.edu with general questions about the dissertation process.

To make an appointment, email me at Ted.Esser@Sofia.edu. Appointment times are Pacific Time. Appointments are done by phone or via Zoom.
