NCUR's Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion

The Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR) is strongly committed to the wide expression of all forms and topics of undergraduate research, by all members of the undergraduate research community, and views with great concern any actions or policies that affect that commitment to inclusivity. As Elizabeth Ambos, CUR’s Executive Officer notes:  “CUR’s programs, including its signature student research conference, the National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR), serve as “home” for all champions and practitioners of undergraduate research, scholarship, and creative inquiry.”

The University of Central Oklahoma is dedicated to educating creative, collaborative graduates who are adaptable and engaged critical thinkers, who are receptive to new ideas, who celebrate the diversity, and who will live fulfilling lives.  By supporting and celebrating diversity in areas including race, class, gender, ethnicity, culture, religion, ableness, sexual and affectional orientation, gender expression, and other aspects of self-identification, the university expands the social and conceptual horizons both of students and of faculty and staff members, and it contributes to the intellectual, cultural, economic, and social advancement of the communities it serves.

Both CUR and the University of Central Oklahoma, this year's host for the NCUR, pledge that the 2018 conference will provide a welcoming, safe, and inclusive environment for all students and other participants.
