"In October of 2007, St. Mary’s University received the very happy news that we had been awarded our first Ronald E. McNair Postbaccalaureate Achievement Program grant- and the world changed just a bit for St. Mary’s undergraduate students. The McNair Program was funded with the charge to facilitate the pursuit of graduate degrees among students traditionally underrepresented in graduate education. St. Mary’s program would be unique in that it would include students from Humanities & Social Sciences, the Bill Greehey School of Business and the school of Science, Engineering and Technology. These students would differ in many ways, but all would share a common aspiration- to join the professoriate and change the face of American higher education. This journal represents the final class of McNair scholars supported by that grant..." Jennifer Zwahr-Castro, PhD, Director, St. Mary's University McNair Scholars Program
