    From: Greenland, N.H.
    Major: English

    I’m Julian Maduro, a senior in English and Justice Studies, and have a passion for prison reform. I have been a member of the Black Student Union, Mosaico, Alliance, Connect, the Hamel Scholar Program, and the COLA Navigators. I had the opportunity to served as Chair of NALA (a group for women of color). One of my favorite experiences at UNH is conducting undergraduate research through the McNair Scholars program. I’m currently researching the importance of Multicultural literature and the inclusion (or lack thereof) of multicultural literature in the high school literary canon.
