The Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR) is strongly committed to the wide expression of all forms and topics of undergraduate research, by all members of the undergraduate research community, and views with great concern any actions or policies that affect that commitment to inclusivity. As Elizabeth Ambos, CUR’s Executive Officer notes: “CUR’s programs, including its signature student research conference, the National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR), serve as 'home' for all champions and practitioners of undergraduate research, scholarship, and creative inquiry.”
Montana State University is committed to creating a welcoming, inclusive, sustainable and equitable learning community. We believe that all forms of social diversity – race/ethnicity, class, gender expression, sexual orientation, ableness, veterans’ status, and religion—add to the campus community, enrich the student experience, and facilitate knowledge creation across forms of difference. To this end, we support critical thought and openness to new ideas. We encourage students to engage in dialogue, listen to differing points of view, and to exercise rigorous inquiry as the future leaders of society who will carve out new pathways towards a more fulfilling and beneficial social existence.
