SCCUR - Southern California Conference of Undergraduate Research


What is SCCUR?

Southern California Conferences for Undergraduate Research (SCCUR) is an organization of Southern California faculty, administrators, and interested members of the community who share the common goal of improving education for college and university students through hands-on experiences of undergraduate research, scholarship, and creative activity. SCCUR supports inquiry-based education, in which students learn while doing, working closely with faculty mentors on significant academic projects and presenting their results to audiences in a professional manner.

In recent years SCCUR’s conference has drawn from seven to nine hundred undergraduate student participants presenting their work in the form of oral presentations, posters, and creative exhibits and performances, as well as their faculty mentors and guests. Participants come from approximately 80 institutions in Southern California and the rest of the nation, with some international presenters.

SCCUR’s cornerstone program is a one-day conference held each November on the campus of a college or university in Southern California. Its purpose is to provide a forum for the presentation and discussion of the best research, scholarship, and creative work of undergraduates in the region, and thus to encourage excellence in undergraduate achievement.
