|ACTUAL OUTCOMES OR EFFECTIVES OF IMPLEMENTATION ACTIVITIES||As of 6/2000, sixty-eight McNair students had completed their bachelor’s degrees. Three quarters of them had enrolled in graduate school, including 29.4% who were currently enrolled in master’s degree programs, 32.4% who had completed master’s degrees, and 13.2% who were enrolled in Ph.D. programs.
Currently, promising students of color are identified through their participation in the precollege programs; through identification by UW-W faculty, staff, and alumni; and by self-referral.
