32nd Annual National Conference on Undergraduate Research
University of Central Oklahoma
April 4 - 7, 2018
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.

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.
In general the cancellation deadline is thirty days prior to the start of the conference, except where explicitly noted. Cancellations requests received in writing to the CUR National Office at email@example.com prior to the cancellation deadline will receive a full refund less a $50.00 cancellation fee. No refunds will be given after the cancellation deadline. Transfer of registration to another individual before the cancellation deadline is free of charge, but subject to member classification charges due to differences in conference rates. Transfer of registration after the cancellation deadline will be charged a $50.00 transfer fee.
Institutions may not substitute one participant for another without prior approval of the National Office.
CUR always suggests that their registrants purchase low-cost travel insurance when booking their air reservations. Not only will this insurance cover your airfare in the event of cancellation but will also cover the registration cost for the meeting you were to attend.
