Facebook Support Group


The Ph.D. Sisters Group (The Sisterhood) is the original support group open to all women who are completing or who have completed their PhD/doctoral program. We engage in discussions about the PhD process, strategies for completing the program, and balancing life in terms of home, work, family, and school. The group is moderated. In order to maintain the integrity and focus of the forum, discussion associated with activities and experiences related to the PhD process will be removed. See the PhD group description and welcome message on facebook for more details.
