Get Involved at NCUR 2014

Published: Mar 10, 2014

LEXINGTON, Ky. (March 10, 2014) — In just a few weeks, the National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR) will take place at the University of Kentucky, bringing a host of events and opportunities to campus.

 
Nearly 4,000 students and faculty mentors from across the country will be on campus for the conference April 3-5. These students, which include nearly 300 from UK, will present their research and creative endeavors through poster and oral presentations, as well as visual and performing arts performances. 

In addition to the presentations, NCUR will also offer speaker events, a graduate and professional school fair, and a career gallery, as well as a concert and excursions for all UK students.
 
A very important component for the success of NCUR 2014 is the involvement of students, who are strongly encouraged to sign up to volunteer and contribute to all facets of conference. Students may begin signing up today at uky.volunteermatch.org/ for various jobs such as directing attendees, managing social media communication, working tables, and providing many other logistical duties that are needed for a conference of this size.

Lexington-based country band Sundy Best will perform Friday evening at the Grand Reserve, and excursions that feature the best the Bluegrass region has to offer, such as Keeneland and Kentucky Horse Park tours, are available for sign-up. All students are invited and encouraged to take part in these activities. Ticket information is available at www.cur.org/ncur_2014/
