Program Mission

The Truman McNair Program recruits highly qualified students, provides academic and social support, and removes barriers from the path of graduate degree attainment. We prepare McNair scholars to attain research doctorates at institutions motivated to ensure their success as students and people.

We apply this mission to every area outlined in our grant narrative with attitudes, activities, strategies, and goals that reflect six core values: creativity, responsibility, accountability, integrity, growth, and advocacy.
