April 

National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR) 

UNIVERSITY OF CENTRAL OKLAHOMA | APRIL 4-7, 2018

The National Conference on Undergraduate Research 2018 embraces the vital relationship between a university and its community in the conference theme, Connection to Place, recognizing the increasing need for direct relevance of an educational experience to the communities that await the college graduate in 2018 and beyond. 

The Council on Undergraduate Research is strongly committed to the wide expression of all forms and topics of undergraduate research, by all members of the undergraduate research community, and views with great concern any actions or policies that affect that commitment to inclusivity. 

Have you conducted undergraduate research and want to present your findings? Abstracts for posters and/or oral presentations are due on Tuesday, December 5, 2017
