Key Features of the CUR Website

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.
