“The McNair Scholars Program was an integral part of my academic career. It was the first opportunity I had where I turned my lived experiences which had always been a drawback, a place of challenges and obstacles, into something productive, important, supportive, and restorative.” – Anthony Carrasco, B.A. Political Science, Legal Studies & Public Policy ‘18.
