NCUR 2023 coming to UW-Eau Claire

2023 National Conference on Undergraduate Research

Hosted by University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire

The National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR) promotes undergraduate research, scholarship and creative activity through an annual conference for students. NCUR is unique because it welcomes students from all institutions of higher learning and from all disciplines.

Join us April 13-15, 2023!

NCUR will be hosted by UW-Eau Claire in the picturesque city of Eau Claire, Wisconsin. The theme, Research at the Confluence, represents a "bringing together" of artistic fields and other disciplines. This theme not only represents the goal of the conference, but Eau Claire itself. Eau Claire was founded at the confluence of the Eau Claire and Chippewa rivers, and this site is now home to the Pablo Center at the Confluence, the performing arts complex that will play a major role in NCUR programming.  

We are honored to be hosting such an important and exciting event. If you'd like to learn more about the history of NCUR and its mission, you can visit their site here

NCUR is one of the only national conferences that extends across every academic discipline. Students will connect with their peers and truly notice how their research is related to all other fields. NCUR is an opportunity for faculty to rediscover their academic well-roundedness, beyond the scope of their specialty.
