ABOUT SCCUR
November 22, 2003
University of California, Irvine

SCCUR promotes awareness of faculty-mentored undergraduate research, scholarly, and creative activities as they exist in various disciplines and types of institutions. The conference fosters appreciation of the valuable role these collaborations play in enhancing undergraduate education. SCCUR aims to develop a multidisciplinary and multicultural community of researchers, scholars and artists linked by a common enthusiasm for learning and discovery.

SCCUR will be a dynamic conference. Students in the arts, humanities and sciences will come together to discuss and display the results of their own creativity applied to original projects in their respective disciplines. The conference will provide ample opportunities for students to share information across disciplinary boundaries.

In addition to students’ oral and poster presentations, the conference will feature a keynote address, faculty-led roundtable discussions at the lunch hour, and a reception. It will be a rich celebration of undergraduate achievement!

The first two SCCUR conferences were held at Caltech in 1993 and 1994, as well as in 2002. The conference has also been hosted by the Claremont Colleges (1995), Occidental (1996), Cal State LA (1997), Cal Poly Pomona (1998), Loyola Marymount University (1999), Cal State Long Beach (2000), and UCLA (2001). We now celebrate 11 years of SCCUR and look forward to the future of undergraduate research in Southern California colleges and universities.

SCCUR is affiliated with the National Conferences on Undergraduate Research, www.ncur.org.
