CHENEY, Wash. - Eastern Washington University has been selected to host the National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR), a prestigious academic event that will bring up to 3,000 students and faculty to the Cheney-Spokane area for the three-day conference, April 16-18, 2015.

Eastern's bid was evaluated by the Council on Undergraduate Research's NCUR oversight committee. Members of the committee visited campus in early September as part of an extensive review process for this respected conference. The university was one of two finalists, and worked with Visit Spokane to bring the research event to the region.

"Eastern is thrilled to be able to host this outstanding research event," said EWU President Rodolfo Arévalo. "The selection of Eastern as the host of this national conference is indicative of the tremendous progress the university has made in promoting research and the development of high quality programs. This conference will also give our students a chance to shine on a national stage against their peers."

"The opportunity to host this respected national event is evidence of the long-standing tradition at EWU to involve our students in research and scholarly pursuits," added Rex Fuller, EWU provost and VP for Academic Affairs. "Hosting NCUR is a tribute to EWU's commitment to academic excellence." For years EWU has sent record numbers of students to the national conference.

"Eastern Washington University provided an excellent proposal that highlighted the commitment of the campus faculty, staff and administrators to the culture and practice of undergraduate research, and the strong partnership between the university and Spokane business and civic communities," said Elizabeth Ambos, executive officer, Council on Undergraduate Research. "EWU provided detailed and thoughtful plans for conference logistics and infrastructure support to the NCUR oversight committee. On behalf of the Council of Undergraduate Research, allow me to express my pleasure at the prospect of working with EWU to prepare what I know will be an outstanding 2015 conference."

Many (114) Eastern students have attended NCUR over the years after honing their skills at the university's annual Student Research and Creative Works Symposium, held each spring on the Cheney campus. The Symposium is the largest, campuswide academic event at EWU, and allows undergraduate and graduate students to showcase their research after months of preparation with their faculty mentors.

Like the EWU Symposium, NCUR gives participants the valuable opportunity to present their scholarly abstracts and creative works - via oral/poster presentation, interactive exhibit or artistic display - in a formal, professional setting. It also gives students an excellent chance to interact, and it prepares them for graduate school and fine tunes their workforce skills.
