CUR is governed by a Council, which is elected by the members of each of our eight disciplinary divisions, one at-large division, and a division for undergraduate research program directors. The Council elects an Executive Committee, which in turn chooses an Executive Officer, who manages the national office.
Each of CUR's ten divisions can have up to 24 Councilors. For a listing of the Councilors in a particular division click on the links below under Division. CUR committees are comprised of Chairs or Co-Chairs plus individuals who represent each division.
In 2003, the Council members and the Executive Board voted that CUR Past Presidents who are members in good standing are granted status as a special class of non-elected voting members of the Council called "Emeritus Presidents".
