About “Planning for 2011”
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 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.
Ithaca College Associate Provost for Academic Policies and Administration, Carol Henderson, is a member of the NCUR Board of Governors. The Board of Governors of the National Conferences on Undergraduate Research consists of more than 20 individuals whose backgrounds include a wide variety of academic fields and positions on the members’ respective campuses.
This blog is to capture a lot of the work that went into planning NCUR 2011. We welcome any questions or comments you may have!
