The Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR), founded in 1978, is a national organization of colleges, universities, and individuals that share a focus on providing undergraduate research opportunities for faculty and students at primarily undergraduate institutions. CUR members believe that education is best served by faculty_student collaborative research and that faculty improve their teaching and contribute to society by remaining active in research. CUR provides avenues for faculty development and helps administrators to improve and assess the research environments of their institutions. CUR membership is organized in a divisional structure that includes biology, chemistry, geoscience, mathematics and computer science, physics and astronomy, psychology, social sciences, and an at-large division that serves administrators and other disciplines. The Chemistry Division is the oldest division of CUR. The programs, publications, meetings, and services of CUR will be presented, highlighting those aspects of most interest to chemists.
