The Council on Undergraduate Research has selected the University of Memphis to host the 2017 National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR). The significant event brings together more than 3,500 students and their faculty mentors for a three-day conference.

NCUR provides students with the opportunity to present their scholarly research in a professional setting and interact with their peers, in addition to meeting with graduate school and corporate recruiters. The event will be held at the U of M April 5-8, 2017.

“We are thrilled to see the University of Memphis recognized as a national home for undergraduate research and creative activity,” said Interim President Brad Martin. “Research is the cornerstone of our great University, and we see the presence of NCUR on our campus in 2017 as additional motivation to grow our undergraduate research programs. We want to continue to inspire the next generation of researchers, scholars and artists.”

Elizabeth Ambos, the Council’s executive officer, said, “The University of Memphis provided an excellent proposal that highlighted the commitment of the campus faculty, staff and administrators to the culture and practice of undergraduate research, and the strong partnership between the University and local business and civic communities.”
