The National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR) is dedicated to promoting undergraduate research, scholarship, and creative activity in all fields of study by sponsoring an annual conference for students. This year, the conference will be hosted right here at Ithaca College March 31 - April 2, 2011.
NCUR will bring more than 2,000 students and faculty from around the nation and beyond to our campus in an event that highlights student scholarship in a wide variety of disciplines.
The conference will provide many ways for us to showcase Ithaca College, and our exceptional students, programs, and services, for visitors. It will also provide unique opportunities for us - members of the IC community are welcome to attend NCUR 2011 sessions free of charge. The conference will feature student seminars, performances, poster presentations, plenary speakers and special events.
The call for student presentation abstracts is open, and the deadline is November 19. Several current students are active on the planning committee and are blogging about all aspects of the conference right now. One of these students, Heather M., has written a post specifically inviting LGBT and Allied students, and all students studying in LGBTA-related fields, to submit their proposals and learn more about NCUR. Read her post from the main NCUR 2011 planning blog, or check back at Out for Good to read it coming up next!
