What is NCUR?
The National Conferences on Undergraduate Research (NCUR), established in 1987, is dedicated to promoting undergraduate research, scholarship, and creative activity in all fields of study by sponsoring an annual conference for students. Unlike meetings of academic professional organizations, this gathering of young scholars welcomes presenters from all institutions of higher learning and from all corners of the academic curriculum. Through this annual April conference, NCUR creates a unique environment for the celebration and promotion of undergraduate student achievement, provides models of exemplary research and scholarship, and helps to improve the state of undergraduate education.
Commitment to Diversity
NCUR has an abiding ccommitment to provide access to the conference to under-represented students and to assist in the development of networks and support structures among those students. NCUR and host sites have jointly raised funds to ensure a strong minority presence at its conferences because it believes both in the value of diverse dialogue and in the infectious spread of the excitement of research by participants to others not in attendance.

Connection to Place
It’s impossible to separate a university and its community. They are connected by vision, by need, by goals. Together, they thrive. The National Conference on Undergraduate Research 2018 embraces this vital relationship 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 University of Central Oklahoma warmly invites you to our place to make connections with innovative undergraduate research, new friends, and new places to broaden your perspective.
