Connection to Place

It’s impossible to separate a university and its community. They are connected by vision, by need, by goals. Together, they thrive. The National Conference on Undergraduate Research 2018 embraces this vital relationship in the conference theme, Connection to Place, recognizing the increasing need for direct relevance of an educational experience to the communities that await the college graduate in 2018 and beyond. 

The University of Central Oklahoma warmly invites you to our place to make connections with innovative undergraduate research, new friends, and new places to broaden your perspective. We call the growing Oklahoma City metro home, where opportunity is as wide open as the plains on which this great city was built. On campus, you’ll encounter a welcoming community surrounded by restaurants, shopping and entertainment in Edmond, Oklahoma’s charming downtown. Just a few minutes away, you can explore Oklahoma’s Native American roots and cowboy heritage. Find adventure at the Oklahoma City Boathouse district, an official U.S. Olympic and Paralympic training site and home to UCO’s CHK|Central Boathouse. Experience downtown OKC’s thriving culture and cuisine scene.

Find your Connection to Place at NCUR 2018!

NCUR's Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion

The Council on Undergraduate Research is strongly committed to the wide expression of all forms and topics of undergraduate research, by all members of the undergraduate research community, and views with great concern any actions or policies that affect that commitment to inclusivity. As Elizabeth Ambos, CUR’s Executive Officer notes:  “CUR’s programs, including its signature student research conference, the National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR), serve as “home” for all champions and practitioners of undergraduate research, scholarship, and creative inquiry.”

Both CUR and the University of Central Oklahoma, this year's host for the NCUR, pledge that the 2018 conference will provide a welcoming, safe, and inclusive environment for all students and other participants.
