The National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR), established in 1987, is dedicated to promoting undergraduate research, scholarship, and creative activity in all fields of study by sponsoring an annual conference for students. Unlike meetings of academic professional organizations, this gathering of young scholars welcomes presenters from all institutions of higher learning and from all corners of the academiccurriculum. Through this annual conference, NCUR creates a unique environment for the celebration and promotion of undergraduate student achievement, provides models of exemplary research and scholarship, and helps to improve the state of undergraduate education.
The Proceedings are published annually as a service of UNC Asheville, and the included papers are representative of the research presented at the conference.
Beginning in 2012, permission to publish NCUR abstracts and articles on-line was obtained from all authors. Permission from the authors was not obtained prior to 2012. As a result, these articles, while on-line, are password protected and available to those who purchase a password. The cost of a CD for 2010 or 2011 and to access the online Proceedings with a password is $20.
Years prior to 2010 are available on CD only and available for a one-time fee of $10.00 per CD.
