The Idaho Conference on Undergraduate Research (ICUR), the first of its kind in the state of Idaho, is a celebration showcasing the leading edge of undergraduate research in all disciplines. The mission of ICUR is to promote mentored undergraduate research, scholarship, and creative activity in Idaho in all disciplines. The goals of ICUR are to promote the engagement of undergraduate students from multiple disciplines in research, to build an extended scholarly community across institutional boundaries in Idaho and to ensure diversity in institutional representation, discipline and students’ background.
