Key Features of the CUR Website

The Latest News section above will include CUR Announcements as well as links to other articles and news that we feel would be of interest to the Undergraduate Research Community.  This section is also available for RSS feed subscription, which will automatically email you when we update this section.
The Event Calendar not only highlights our upcoming events but allows you to search for other similar events and review program related information.
The entire website has Enhanced Interactivity.  Each time you come to the CUR Website, use the login at the top right hand of the screen to ensure you have access to exclusive content and the latest news.  Should you need a reminder of your membership login, please Contact Us.  Once you've logged in, be sure to check out the Membership Benefits page for an interactive list of your specific benefits.
One of CUR's greatest strengths is our membership base.  Members are always willing to share resources and ideas.  Please check out our Resources Pages.  These lists are for all undergraduate research practitioners, be they individual faculty, students, or institutions.  The lists are interactive, so we hope that if you know of an additional resource that is not listed, that you will add it using the submission page link at the bottom of each listing.

Council on Undergraduate Research Statement on Diversity

The Council on Undergraduate Research is committed to inclusivity and diversity in all of its activities, therefore CUR will increase and nurture participation of individuals and groups that have been traditionally underrepresented in undergraduate research.
