The National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR) promotes undergraduate research, scholarship and creative activity through an annual conference for undergraduate students. NCUR is unique because it offers students from all disciplines and institutions of higher education the chance to showcase their work on a national stage. And when that stage is located at a university dedicated to research, in a city that is truly a rising star in the Midwest, you are going to want to explore this amazing opportunity.  

The conference theme, Research at the Confluence, represents a "bringing together" of the humanities, artistic endeavors and the sciences. 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 is now home to the Pablo Center at the Confluence, a state-of-the-art performing arts complex that will play a major role in NCUR 2023.

UW-Eau Claire is honored to be hosting such an important, exciting celebration of research, and it will be especially meaningful as an in-person event. We invite you to join us for this transformational conference.
