Ronald E. McNair Scholars Showcase

Author
  • Margaret Shirley (Iowa State University)

Abstract

The overall goal of McNair programs nationally is to increase the number of underrepresented, low-income, and first-generation students receiving the Ph.D. This goal is achieved by exposing them to research and preparing them for the graduate school experience. McNair scholars are required to have a faculty mentor who guides them from the beginning through the completion of a research project over the course of a two-year period. In this session participants will have the opportunity to learn about the program and be presented with the research of four students. Each individual has their own titled research: Ruth Cardenas, "Perspectives of Domestic Violence Service Providers: Serving Latina Women in Iowa;" Ruby Murillo, "How the Inherent Uncertainty of Future Events Influences the Confession Decisions of Criminal Suspects;" Roberto Orozco, "Racial Stress, Acculturation, and Social Support for Latino/as in Panhellenic Organizations within Predominantly European American Collegiate Institutions;" Margaret Shirley, "Men's Attitudes Towards Seeking Couple's cCounseling." A brief question and answer time will follow.
