A brief description of the institution’s programs that help increase the diversity of higher education faculty:

The federally-funded Ronald E. McNair Post-baccalaureate Achievement Program (http://www.uwosh.edu/mcnairscholars) prepares 25 UW Oshkosh undergraduates annually for doctoral study by pairing them with faculty mentors who assist the students in designing, implementing, and completing a significant research project. The program seeks to increase the attainment of advanced degrees by students from first-generation, low-income, and underrepresented groups.

Additional services and seminars are offered to students throughout their tenure with the McNair program. These include research methodology, writing and oral presentation skills, academic and career development, GRE application and preparation, and graduate school site visits. In the summer following their junior year, McNair Scholars participate in an eight week, research-intensive program that leads to presentation or publication. McNair Scholars also will have the opportunity to speak with UW Oshkosh alumni who are seeking advanced degrees.

The Office of Grants and Faculty Development (http://www.uwosh.edu/grants) supports UW Oshkosh academic staff, as well as students, in their creative, scholarly and research endeavors. They assist academic staff in locating, proposing, submitting and administering extramural funding. Their grants can also support UW Oshkosh students through research symposia and collaborative research opportunities.
