McNair Scholars Graduate Network

The Yuput Diversity Office is excited to announce the newly established McNair Scholars Graduate Network. As of Fall 2018, we currently have 27 McNair Scholar alumni who are pursuing graduate degrees at the University of Utah and the McNair graduate network will allow McNair alumni to connect with each other, build friendships, serve as an additional support system, and connect with the Assistant Dean for Diversity as they make progress towards degree completion.

Dr. Araceli Frias (Assistant Dean for Diversity) is a proud alumna of the Eastern Washington University McNair Scholars Program. The McNair Scholars Graduate Network is an initiative that she is extremely passionate about and she looks forward to connecting with McNair alumni and supporting their academic success.

The McNair Scholars Graduate Network will connect monthly over breakfast or lunch to discuss alumni graduate experiences, challenges, successes, needed resources and/or guidance navigating graduate school.
