In August, from the Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR), EWU received word of its selection as one of two finalists to host the 29th National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR) in spring 2015.
Founded in 1978, the Council on Undergraduate Research has a membership of more than 900 colleges and universities. The council’s mission of promoting and supporting high-quality faculty and student collaborations in research and scholarship is in keeping with EWU’s own emphasis on faculty and student-driven research and creative works, as evidenced by the university’s annual Student Research and Creative Works Symposium, which will celebrate its 16th anniversary in 2013.
In early October, an EWU team traveled to LaCrosse, Wisc., to make a detailed presentation to the CUR Conferences’ Committee. Results are expected within the next four weeks.
