One benefit of presenting at NCUR® is the opportunity for students to publish their work in the conference Proceedings, produced annually by the University of North Carolina at Asheville and distributed to institutions across the nation. All student presenters at the conference (including students in the performing/visual arts) are invited to submit manuscripts for review by the Proceedings Board.
Submitting work to the Proceedings has many advantages, two of which are deemed especially important:
- The opportunity to receive comments from faculty outside your college or university, thereby enhancing the paper for submission to other sources in your field
- The opportunity to list your publication on your resume for graduate and professional school applications
After you have received notification of your abstract's acceptance, you will receive a separate communication about submitting a paper to the Proceedings.
You can find out more about the NCUR Proceedings by visiting the University of North Carolina at Asheville's website.
