National Conferences on Undergraduate Research
The National Conferences on Undergraduate Research (NCUR) promotes undergraduate research, scholarship, and creative activity done in partnership with faculty or other mentors as a vital component of higher education. Established in 1987, NCUR encourages awareness of undergraduate research, scholarship, and creative opportunities as they exist in various disciplines and types of institutions; promotes appreciation of the valuable role these components play in complementing the other aspects of undergraduate education and in encouraging the pursuit of advanced study and academic careers; communicates and celebrates the results of such student-mentor collaborations; and fosters a multidisciplinary and multicultural community of researchers, scholars, and artists linked by a common enthusiasm for learning.
The most visible element of NCUR's programmatic activities is its three-day annual conference. Through this annual conference, NCUR celebrates and promotes undergraduate student achievement, provides models of exemplary research and scholarship, and helps to improve the state of undergraduate education. NCUR has an abiding commitment to provide access to the conference to under-represented students and to assist in the development of networks and support structures among those students.
