The UW-Eau Claire McNair Scholars' Journal
"This publication shows what happens when talented 'outliers' gain the right resources — like intentional mentoring from caring university professionals and membership in a learning community marked by both academic energy and racial/ethnic diversity. The authors whose articles appear here all entered graduate school after UW-Eau Claire . . . Read between the lines of the articles, and see why UW-Eau Claire's McNair program has produced the greatest number of doctoral-degree holders of any McNair program in the State of Wisconsin." - Dr. Patricia Quinn, director emerita of the McNair program
