The 18th CUR Biennial Conference, "Creating Collaborative Connections in and through Undergraduate Research," will take place at the Hyatt Regency Crystal City in Arlington, VA, on July 1–3, 2018. Faculty, administrators, staff, academic and community partners, and policymakers will share interdisciplinary investigations—both individual and collaborative—across local, national, and international contexts, as they showcase models of undergraduate research activities at all types of higher education institutions. Showcasing novel ideas in plenary talks, stimulating sessions, and informal networking activities, the conference will offer practical strategies and future directions for undergraduate research at higher education institutions and organizations around the world.
