Very unfortunately, Whitewater does not have a subscription to the ProQuest Dissertations and Theses Global database. Also unfortunately, these often will not be sent out on Interlibrary Loan.
If you are affiliated with another university, check their subscriptions for this database.

You can go to their campus and download the dissertation you need.
