About NCUR

NCUR 2018 is the premier forum showcasing undergraduate student research and innovation. UCO plans to welcome to our Edmond campus 5,000 student presenters and faculty research mentors representing national and international colleges and universities. Students selected through a competitive review process will represent all academic disciplines sharing their research as a scholarly poster, oral presentation, art exhibition, or creative performance. NCUR will provide a significant economic impact to Edmond and the OKC Metro and is an exceptional opportunity to support and engage with the best and brightest students who will join us in 2018.
