The mission of The Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR) is to support and promote high-quality undergraduate student-faculty collaborative research and scholarship in all disciplines, including the social sciences, arts, and humanities. Individual members receive numerous benefits, including an electronic subscription to the CUR Quarterly; access to information on funding opportunities and other resources, including support for student travel to meetings; majors discounts to attend CUR conferences, dialogues, and workshops; free access to CUR hosted webinars; and mentoring or pre-submission proposal reviews from colleagues in the discipline. Individual membership in CUR is available at no cost to CU Denver and CU AMC faculty, staff, and students under our Enhanced Institutional Membership, which was made possible by the Office of Research and the Office of Undergraduate Experiences.
