*The Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR), in keeping with our strategic pillar of diversity and inclusion, promotes inclusivity with respect to race, religion, color, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, political affiliation, genetic information or disability. CUR views with great concern any actions or conditions that negatively affect attendance and inclusivity with respect to the fullest expression of undergraduate research. Barriers to attendance negatively impact our ability to remain committed to the wide expression of all forms and topics of undergraduate research, by all members of the undergraduate research community. CUR event hosts are expected to describe efforts to provide an inclusive and welcoming meeting environment and to disclose any current or pending local or state laws that are not in keeping with CUR’s strategic pillar of diversity and inclusion. Issues of equal access and inclusivity are important factors in making awards to host CUR events.
