From:  Katherine Pence, Baruch ICUR Coordinator, Chair and Associate Professor of History

Please come and encourage students and colleagues to attend this unique conference showcasing Baruch's young scholars!

Thanks to the generous support of the Office of the Provost, the Weissman School of Arts and Sciences, the Zicklin School of Business, and the School of Public and International Affairs at Baruch, our undergraduates have the opportunity this year to participate in the Third Annual International Conference of Undergraduate Research (ICUR) at Baruch at which they will present their original research papers on panels with students at universities in the UK and Australia linked via teleconferencing technology. Organized by the Monash University/University of Warwick Alliance, the conference this year includes 9 institutions on 5 continents with 240 undergraduates presenting papers orally and 324 presenting posters. Baruch is one of two US colleges participating. This year, we have 14 students participating at Baruch, a big increase over last year's 9 participants. This is an excellent opportunity for students to take part in a professional conference experience on a global stage. If you have students writing theses, this is a great chance for them to see the work of those who have completed their research. For more information see icurportal.com

To RSVP, write to me at Katherine.Pence@baruch.cuny.edu or register for free at http://www.icurportal.com/audience-registration/

Thanks to all of you for your support.

Best,
