How can I find out more?

The activities, workshops, seminars, and overall management of the program are under the purview of the program director, Jennifer Deane with assistance of the McNair Advisory Group, ACE director, and assistant director Charise DeBerry.

If you have any questions about the McNair program, eligibility, the application process, etc., contact Jennifer or Charise.

Where will information be posted?

McNair Scholars will be added to a Canvas "McNair Scholars" course when selected into the program. Announcements and detailed information will be provided through this page.

We are excited to have a McNair program on the Morris campus—it's a natural fit for our students, and we are excited about working with you to achieve your dreams!
