Advocacy

Insight Overview

Advocating for undergraduate research takes on a variety of forms. Whether you are an ambassador for undergraduate research, a student championing its importance, or simply someone passionate about fostering the growth and success of undergraduate research, CUR has compiled valuable resources to assist in advocacy efforts at every level of government—be it federal, state, or local. These resources are designed to empower and support civically engaged researchers in their mission to promote and advance the significance of undergraduate research within the broader academic and societal landscape.
