Eastern Washington University’s McNair Program is proud to announce that 18 McNair Scholars presented at this year’s Creative Works and Research Symposium. In the midst of regular reminders of the suffering from COVID-19, in particular its disproportionate effect on communities of color, as well as recent civil unrest, McNair hopes that lifting up its scholars will continue to support the students’ work and the ultimate goal of McNair, which is to increase diversity in academia.


Every McNair Scholar at EWU has powerful story. It is McNair’s goal that scholars use their powerful knowledge, experiences and voices to develop research and actions that contribute to shifts in systemic racism, economic inequality and overall building a more just world.
