All-But-Dissertation (ABD) Survival Guide Editor:
Gayle Scroggs, Ph.D., PCC

The ABD Survival Guide is a free monthly newsletter that is distributed to thousands of graduate students struggling to finish their dissertations. The ABDSG and MentorCoach operate in wonderfully reciprocal fashion: ABD students are prime for coaching assistance and MCP coaches at all levels are ready to assist them. In addition to experienced dissertation coaches, “intern coaches” nearing certification may also be paired with ABD students or lead virtual workshops for them. Gayle oversees it all.
