22 McNair & ROP scholars (including Ms. Do)  will present their research at the UC-Berkeley McNair Symposium, August 2-5, 2012.

At UC-Berkeley, students will have an opportunity to participate in workshops about graduate school and the application process; attend a graduate school recruitment fair where they will meet with graduate program advisors and some faculty; and meet with Stanford University graduate program advisors and faculty and tour the campus.

Recognizing that diversity of scholars is integral to educational excellence, the University of New Mexico’s Ronald E. McNair Post-baccalaureate Achievement Program and the Research Opportunity Program seek to produce scholars and researchers who will more accurately reflect the growing diversity in intellectual perspectives, life experiences and cultures in academe.
