If you haven’t said hello to the new and continuing cohort – you should.
And if you see their smiling faces around ask them how their graduate school applications are going!
As the Fall Quarter kicks off the EWU McNair Scholars are finishing up their summer research projects and are preparing to apply to graduate programs. If you haven’t had a chance to meet the scholars make sure to check out our Fall Newsletter (in its awesome new format!) to get to know the new cohort and see what they have been up to all summer.
On Tuesday January 13, Amy Núñez presented her research experiment The Clark Doll Experiment: How Race/Ethnicity and Gender Influence the Perceptions of Pursuing College in Washington State. This study gathered data over two years from elementary schools around Washington State to emulate the Kenneth Clark Doll Experiment. Amy Núñez, McNair Scholar, used focus groups of parents, surveys of teachers, and interviews of Latino elementary students to assess perceptions of higher education, cultural competence, and self-efficacy to determine how race, ethnicity, and gender influence the pursuing of college in Washington State. Amy gave an insightful and informative presentation to a packed room of EWU’s students, faculty and staff.
