REVEAL Research Media: UK Hosts Largest-Ever NCUR

LEXINGTON, Ky. (April 8, 2014) — Last week, the University of Kentucky hosted the largest-ever National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR), an event that brings students and their mentors from across the country to present their research and creative endeavors.  This was the largest NCUR in the conference's 28-year history.
The event featured poster, oral and performing arts presentations in a variety of topics, from film studies and music, to biology and engineering. The conference not only allowed students to present their work, but to develop their communication and presentation skills while meeting other like-minded students.
A career gallery, graduate and professional school fair, art gallery, open houses, plenary speakers, concerts and excursions were also provided for the students.

Preparation for an event of this size begun over two years ago, and was made possible by the collaboration of many colleges and departments across campus, and by the help of hundreds of student, faculty and staff volunteers.
