The Ronald E. McNair Post-Baccalaureate Achievement Program is designed to encourage first generation, low-income students and minority undergraduates to consider careers in college teaching as well as prepare for doctoral study. Students who participate in this program are provided with research opportunities and faculty mentors. This program was named in honor of the astronaut who died in the 1986 space-shuttle explosion. Currently there are more than 155 McNair projects at universities throughout the U.S., serving over 4,000 students. Sul Ross’ McNair program was established in October 2007 and is funded through the Department of Education’s TRIO program.
