University Recognizes McNair Scholars at Symposium

McNair SymposiumEvery February, the University of Oregon celebrates the research achievements of its McNair Scholars during the McNair Symposium. These achievements are made possible by faculty mentors who guide scholars through scholarship activities and help prepare them for the challenges and culture of graduate school.

 

McNair Scholars participate in paid summer research internships in their fields of study. During the internships, students are involved in original research culminating in a presentation of their findings. Held winter term, the McNair Symposium provides a public forum for students to share their work with peers, mentors, faculty and staff, family members and the general public.

 

On February 15, 2017, the Department of Psychology recognized five McNair Scholars:

Kristina Lowney – Feelings of Belonging and Future Persistence in STEM

Dr. Sara Hodges, Mentor

 

Tonya C. Hansberry – Sequelae of Maternal Trauma: Attachment Relationships and the Development of Empathy in the Next Generation
