UK's Division of Undergraduate Education Announces Largest-Ever National Conference on Undergraduate Research

Published: Mar 18, 2014

 

It's almost here! The National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR) will take place at the University of Kentucky April 3-5, bringing a host of events and opportunities to campus.

 

Nearly 4,000 students and faculty mentors from across the country (300 of them from UK) will come to the university to 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 (featuring Pearse Lyons, Kris Kimel, Nikky Finney and Ernest Bailey), a graduate and professional school fair, a career gallery and a concert.

 

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 the 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.  View a guide to follow the 10 steps to signing up for NCUR.

All UK students are also invited to attend the NCUR concert by Lexington-based country band Sundy Best from 9-11 p.m. Friday, April 4, at the Grand Reserve by the Barrel House. Ticket information is available at www.cur.org/ncur_2014/
