On November 16, 2010 the U.S. House of Representatives declared the week of April 11, 2011 as “Undergraduate Research Week”. Since that time, each year CUR has designated a week in April as “Undergraduate Research Week”.
Undergraduate Research Week 2019 will be April 8-12, 2019. Consider planning campus celebration days and other special events during this week.
Consider planning your celebration days and other special events during this week, and next year be sure to send your event information to firstname.lastname@example.org for inclusion on the event listing website. You might also write to your local government, such as Governors, County Executives, Mayors, etc to ask them to name this week Undergraduate Research Week for your jurisdiction.
On Twitter, use the Undergraduate Research Week hashtag #URW20xx (so in the year 2019, it would be #URW2019) in your tweets on undergraduate research activities, events, students, and mentors. Have more to say than a standard tweet can handle? Consider posting to CUR’s Facebook page.
