Council on Undergraduate Research

CUR 14th Biennial Conference
June 23-26, 2012
Hosted by The College of New Jersey

Leveraging Uncertainty:
Toward a New Generation of Undergraduate Research
In current crises of economic viability, urban decline, environmental degradation, and cultural meaning, we face deep and broad-based concerns, both for personal prospects and larger social contracts. We can be swept along by those changes, or we can use them as opportunities for positive transformation. We know that research must inform our responses to these new conditions. And we know that undergraduate research offers experiences and skills that our students can draw on for successful future study, meaningful work lives, and social engagement. This conference will ask us to consider new models of undergraduate research that create possibilities where others might see peril.

The subthemes for the 2012 CUR National Conference are as follows:
  • Research Transcending Historic Disciplinary Boundaries
  • Sustaining Undergraduate Research in an Era of Fiscal Uncertainty
  • Online Technology in Undergraduate Research: Possibilities, Threats and Challenges
  • The Challenges and Opportunities of Undergraduate Research in a Broad Global Context

Submission Deadline for Interactive Sessions and Catalyst Discussions is November 15, 2011.
Submission Deadline for Poster Presentations is February 1, 2012.
