Council on Undergraduate Research

The University of Miami is a proud Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR) Enhanced Institutional Member.
The Office of Undergraduate Research (UGR) is pleased to offer UM students, faculty, staff, administrators, and mentors the opportunity to become a CUR member at no cost. These individual CUR memberships are made possible through the University of Miami's Enhanced Institutional membership. The membership is paid for by UGR in support of research endeavors spanning across the entire university.


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. CUR has grown to include 13 divisions spanning all disciplines, more than 13,000 individual members from undergraduate students to university presidents, and more than 700 institutional members from all types of institutions. 



CUR Membership is designed to guide and assist faculty, mentors, administrators, researchers, staff, and students in their efforts to develop, enhance, sustain, and support undergraduate research on their campuses and beyond. Community is vital to any success and with this diverse membership, you can work together to advance undergraduate research across the nation and around the world.
