On Thursday, eight McNair scholars will publicly present their summer research, featuring projects exploring everything from the politics of food choice to Russian literature to the effects of phosphorous runoff, in three sessions: Food Matters--the Intersection of Biology & Society; Biosocial Cycles; and Social Policies/Social Movements. Karen Bauer, Rita Bouwens, Sudan Garner, Fabiola Candela Hernandez, Milica Mihajlovic, Vanessa Pena, and Jason Saba are the students who will be offering presentations, beginning at 8:30 a.m. in the Science Center’s Porter Brown Auditorium (Room 150).
The day will conclude with a panel discussion from former McNair scholars. For a complete schedule of the days events, click on the PDF at right.
The McNair Scholars Program is a federally funded program (one of the TRIO Programs funded by the Department of Education) with a goal of increasing the number of students in doctoral degree programs who are low-income and first-generation undergraduates or students who come from groups underrepresented in graduate education.
