School of Business News Releases  

Glenda Evans, Assistant Professor and Senior Advisor in the School of Business, developed two pre-requisites of the four-course research colloquium that all McNair participants will complete during the first two semesters of the program. The U.S. Department of Education has awarded Hampton University nearly $1.2 million to fund its Ronald McNair Post-Baccalaureate Achievement Program. The project will prepare 25 low-income, first-generation students and underrepresented students as they work toward a doctoral degree. The Ronald E. McNair Post-Baccalaureate Achievement Program, named in memory of physicist and Challenger astronaut Dr. Ronald E. McNair, is one of several TRiO programs (Upward Bound, Talent Search and Student Support Services) funded by the Department of Education.   Its goal is to increase post-baccalaureate students from underrepresented segments of society, including first-generation low-income individuals and members from racial and ethnic groups historically underrepresented in graduate programs.
