Established in 1987, NCUR is an annual event dedicated to promoting undergraduate research, scholarship, and creative activity in all fields of study. More than 4,000 students from across the U.S. presented their research through posters, oral presentations, visual arts, and performances this year.
The NDSU students were poster and oral presentation awardees from the 4th Annual NDSU EXPLORE event held on November 1, 2017. The NCUR trip was sponsored by the NDSU Research and Creative Activity Office.
As a student-focused, land-grant, research university, we serve our citizens.
