A great deal of effort is required to put together a conference of the magnitude of SCCUR each year, and more generally, to promote SCCUR’s high ideals of undergraduate research on a larger scale. No matter what your background or experience is, if you have an interest in undergraduate research or the broader vision of stimulating creative activity in undergraduate education, there are ways that you can help.
How Can I Support the Annual Conference?
If you are a student interested in pursuing undergraduate research, in the midst of undergraduate research, or in the process of completing an undergraduate research project, you can help simply by participating in SCCUR!
If you are a faculty member actively involved or interested in undergraduate research, you can help by becoming a mentor and encouraging your students to present their research at professional conferences, including SCCUR.In addition, if you are interested in assisting conference staff by reading abstracts, overseeing registration, moderating conference sessions, organizing a round-table discussion, etc., please see the Faculty Mentors page on this site.
Whether you are a student, faculty member, or neither, you can help the Annual Conference to be a success simply with your presence at the conference, and by encouraging involvement by other interested parties you interact with throughout the year.Each person who attends the conference is a valuable supporter of SCCUR and undergraduate research. By interacting with faculty and students about their research and their presentations, you demonstrate that the work they have done is important, meaningful, and deserving of attention.A question you ask or a conversation you have with a conference participant has the power to open doors of inquiry and inspire students and their mentors for months or perhaps even years to come.
How Can I Support SCCUR?
In addition to supporting the Annual Conference, there are many other ways that you can support SCCUR throughout the year. For more information, please contact the president of the SCCUR Board of Directors, Candace Rypisi at.
