Dear EWU Community, 

As we are near the end of another academic year, the McNair Program continues to seek ways to navigate successfully through a changing landscape. We remain committed to students, and our mission to diversify academia by providing research and other scholarly activities to underrepresented students for success at the graduate level. In the midst of recent reminders of our social inequality and injustice, the McNair’s mission of diversifying the face of academia is of much importance

While we couldn’t share our 2019-2020 accomplishments this year in person, we have created a short, seven-minute slideshow highlighting memories of our McNair Class of 2020.

The slideshow shows how McNair works together to fulfill the McNair grant objectives, culminated in our students’ successes. It’s a team effort, and if you have an experience working with McNair that you would like us to share on our website on our “Virtual Spring Gathering” page, please e-mail me with your remarks.
