UOS8100PHDBI SECTION 2 Discussion Week 1 Academic Skills Unit 2

Staying on Track

Students who have a strong, personal, professional, and academic support network are more likely to succeed in school. As you begin your doctoral program, you have the ability to design your support network so that it is most beneficial to you. Informing others that you are returning to school, educating them about what that means, and letting them know specifically how they can help, will be a catalyst for your success.

For this discussion, complete the following:

  • Complete the Readiness Center Self-Management: Evaluate Your Support Network module (linked in the Resources).
  • Reflect on what you learned in the module. Then write and post one to two paragraphs in response to the following guidelines.
    • Describe one person you can enlist to help support you as you pursue your doctoral degree.
    • Describe how that support person can help you.
    • Explain how you will ask that person to provide you with that support.

Response Guidelines

Read other learners’ posts and respond to at least one. This is an opportunity for you and your fellow learners to share strategies. As you continue your doctoral work at Capella, your learning colleagues can be a great resource of support, accountability, and inspiration to achieve your goals. You can start building that part of your support network right now.
