Dissertation Embargo Policy

Modified: November 4, 2016

Ahead of our Administrative Board meeting on November 9, and following discussion with the Graduate Leadership and Advocacy Council (GLAC) and a town hall meeting for students, TGS would like to share with you our Dissertation Embargo Policy, which we anticipate will be approved at the meeting, and will apply to all students beginning January 1, 2017.
Broadly, students wishing to delay public release of their dissertation may request an embargo of up to two years, submitting clearly stated rationale to TGS Academic Affairs. We recommend you read the one-page summary of the policy, including background information about why the policy was created here.
If, after reading the full background information, you feel there are major red flags TGS should consider before implementing this policy, please write to tgsacademicaffairs@northwestern.edu by November 8 at 5 PM.
