The mission of the Utah Conference on Undergraduate Research (UCUR) is to promote undergraduate research, scholarship, and creative activity, done with the mentorship of a faculty member or others, through an annual conference. Undergraduate research is a high-impact educational practice - students who participate in research opportunities lead to positive outcomes with retention, graduation, and post-graduation decisions. Student presentations are welcome in all fields and disciplines from the creative and performing arts to biomedical, engineering, and social science research.

Co-chairs: Dr. Annie Isabel Fukushima, Cindy Greaves, and Megan Shannahan
