The Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR) was founded in 1978 by a group of chemists from private liberal arts colleges who wanted to provide information about research that was being conducted at liberal arts colleges by faculty, often in collaboration with students. Although CUR now welcomes members from all disciplines, many of CUR’s current programs were initially designed and implemented by chemists.
