Proceedings of The National Conference on Undergraduate Research

The National Conferences on Undergraduate Research began at UNC Asheville in 1987.  The first two conferences were held on UNC Asheville's campus.  After the first NCUR many participants expressed interest in a conference publication.  The Proceedings began with the second conference in 1988.  UNC Asheville assumed the role of editing and publishing this document as the host for the second conference.  In 1989, when the conference moved to Trinity University in San Antonio Texas, the Board agreed to allow UNC Asheville to continue published the conference document.  This agreement has continued to this day.  The NCUR Governing Board appoints the Proceedings' editor.  Prior to 1991 Kathy Whatley was the editor and after NCUR 91 Bob Yearout assumed this role.  The Proceedings has grown since its inception to a collection of over 350 papers contained on one Compact Disk (CD).  The Proceedings has become a semi-self supporting enterprise.
