CUR is hosting its 16th National Conference, "Creating the Citizens of Tomorrow: Undergraduate Research for All," in Washington, DC - a fitting location for its theme of democratizing undergraduate research! In situating the conference in out nation's capital, CUR will highlight cross-disciplinary connections and collaborations among higher education, government agencies, and non-profit organizations.
The overall goals of the conference are to encourage broad participation in undergraduate research and to make visible its benefits to students, faculty, colleges and universities, and communities. Students who participate in undergraduate research are better prepared in their fields of study as well as more informed as citizens as they learn skills of problem-solving, critical thinking, and communication. But as faculty and institutions still face barriers to giving every student a significant research experience, this conference focuses on creative ideas and practical solutions for meeting those challenges. Conference participants will share strategies and models that have helped strengthen undergraduate research in their institutions—in plenary talks, an exciting variety of conference sessions, and through the informal networking that is a hallmark of CUR conferences.
CUR invites proposals that address the following themes in any discipline:
- Undergraduate Research for the Public Good
- Undergraduate Research for All! Ensuring Access to High Quality Opportunities
- Undergraduate Research for High-impact Learning: Scaling Up and Scaffolding
- Undergraduate Research for Transformation: Assessing the Impact
- Undergraduate Research for Mentors: Support and Sustenance
- Funding for Undergraduate Research: Finding and Leveraging Resources
- Undergraduate Research for the Future: Exploring New Directions
- Other non-theme proposals are also welcome
