Mentor Faculty-Mentoring Program

The McNair Faculty-Mentoring Program:

The primary responsibilities of the faculty mentor are as follows:

  • To work closely with the assigned scholar to design and complete a start to finish research project which “is more rigorous that is typically available to undergraduates in a classroom setting.” (CFR 647.7)
  • To create an open, collegial environment by meeting with, mentoring, and encouraging scholars, with the goal of building a professional relationship of mutual trust and respect.
  • To attend the Annual McNair Showcase during which scholars present their research.
  • To facilitate, when appropriate, opportunities for the scholar to present at professional conferences and/or co-publish in peer-reviewed journals.
  • To assist the scholar in identifying graduate programs that are a strong fit.
  • To write graduate school recommendations.
