Miami Enhanced Institutional Member of Council on Undergraduate Research Logo

We strongly encourage everyone (faculty, staff, undergraduate and graduate students) to visit CUR Resources to learn about membership benefits and professional development opportunities. Miami's Enhanced Institutional Membership covers the cost of joining CUR for everyone in the Miami community (undergraduates, graduate students, staff and faculty).

For example, CUR Registry of Undergraduate Researchers facilitates matchmaking between undergraduates with research experience and a desire to pursue an advanced degree, and graduate schools seeking high quality students who are well prepared for research.

Miami's Enhanced Institutional Membership covers your annual cost. Your CUR membership is free.

About the Council on Undergraduate Research

  • CUR was founded in 1978 by a group of chemists from private liberal arts colleges who wanted to provide information about research that was being conducted at liberal arts colleges by faculty, often in collaboration with students. Today, members include nearly 10,000 individuals and over 650 colleges and universities.
  • CUR believes that faculty members enhance their teaching and contribution to society by remaining active in research and by involving undergraduates in research.
  • CUR defines Undergraduate Research as "An inquiry or investigation conducted by an undergraduate student that makes an original intellectual or creative contribution to the discipline".
  • CUR supports and promotes high-quality undergraduate student-faculty collaborative research and scholarship. In 2010, the National Council of Undergraduate Research (NCUR) combined with CUR to be the national voice for undergraduate research.
