Our Mission

Our UWO McNair Scholars Program seeks to empower high-achieving, first-generation, low-income, and racially minoritized undergraduates to realize their potential by providing opportunities to develop skills and gain the experiences that will prepare them for graduate study. Central to our mission is to build a community of scholarship where participants engage in faculty-mentored research, distinguished by active learning, mutual respect, and collaborative scholarship. Inherit in our mission is to harness the energy of a new and more diverse generation who is committed to scholarly inquiry.
