Director, Roger Coles, Ed.D.
As a faculty member at CMU since 1972 and a Department
Chair for 20 years, I am honored to be the director of the McNair
program. With the tremendous shortage of well qualified future
educators, I encourage you to consider the McNair Scholars Program. You
will receive exceptional opportunities to conduct research and work
closely with faculty and I personally look forward to working with you
as you embark on an exciting career in academia.
Associate Director, Lynn Curry
from an interdisciplinary background and having worked in higher
education, I am very excited to receive the opportunity to work with the
McNair Scholars Program at CMU. Besides the continuous challenge of
working to enhance the program, my favorite part of the job is working
closely with our scholars! I enjoy seeing them grow, encouraging them to
think about things in a new light and helping them to set and achieve
goals for themselves that perhaps they might not have considered
otherwise. This personal interaction is hugely satisfying and I look
forward to working with and inspiring future scholars!
Program Assistant, Kim Whitney
I am thrilled to be a CMU employee and to have the
opportunity to work with the McNair Scholars as the McNair Program
Assistant. I love watching a young adult grow and seeing them succeed,
not only in academia, but in life. I
hope to be able to encourage them, keeping them motivated and on track so they
can fulfill their dreams and move toward a rewarding future.
