    Dr. Ronald E. McNair was a mission specialist on the Challenger space
    shuttle, and 25 years ago, his legacy for exploration and knowledge was
    memorialized. By an act of the U.S. Congress, our nation’s universities were
    gifted a program to provide access to graduate education to underserved
    and under-represented students. The McNair Scholars Program on
    our campus has served as the beginning of an academic enterprise for
    numerous groups of talented individuals. Many have completed not
    only baccalaureate degrees, but also master’s and doctoral degrees as well.
    These individuals are a part of Dr. McNair’s legacy to open the avenues of
    academic inquiry to all.
    On behalf of the university, I congratulate the McNair Scholars whose
    research is reflected in this year’s California State University, Sacramento
    McNair Scholars Journal and I salute the faculty and staff who have worked
    to encourage our students to pursue academic excellence. The McNair
    Program is a wonderful treasure and our students have certainly reaped the
    benefits of this wonderful investment.

    The McNair Scholars Post-baccalaureate Achievement Program highlights the importance of academic achievement, scholarly inquiry, and mentorship. The outstanding students in this year’s cohort convened each week over the last year to present their knowledge, share their experiences, and take advantage of the unique opportunities that being a McNair Scholar offers. These scholars, as representatives of their various disciplines, attended symposiums, conferences, workshops, and classes to present and share their scholarly research. From the reading of the journal, you will find research on topics of great interest including:
    *Governmental use of New Media
    *Early childhood education and closing the achievement gap
    *Comparing the activity and spatial requirements of captive and wild
    primates
    In this current time of budgetary constraints and personal fiscal hardships,
    our scholars have embraced the desire to achieve and demonstrate the
    importance of the investment that is being made in each of them. These
    are individuals who seek to make a difference in the world and to explore
    topics to find new ideas and solutions for the problems that face our world
    today. From educating our children to managing the care of the elderly
    to discovering the fiscal and environmental balances we must achieve, the
    scholars have embraced the challenge to explore, research, and discover
    answers to some of the toughest problems our society faces today.
    As institutions of higher education seek to address growing fiscal
    constraints, our scholars give rise to the future as they prepare to be leaders
    in higher education. Along with their faculty mentors, who have worked
    alongside these scholars, the McNair Scholars Program staff and I are
    proud of their accomplishments. I hope you will enjoy reading their work.
