Salt Lake City.

They are among 29 Union students at the conference. As in
years past, the Union contingent is among the largest at the conference. Union was a charter participant in NCUR in 1987, and hosted the conference in 1990 and 1995.

The Union group is accompanied by Ann Anderson, professor
mechanical engineering and member of the NCUR Board of Governors; Mousumi Duttaray, visiting assistant professor of economics; and Thomas Werner, Florence B. Sherwood Professor of Physical Sciences (chemistry) and former chair of the NCUR Board of Governors.

NCUR 2003 brings together undergraduates involved in scholarly and artistic activities representing a range of disciplines including creative arts, mathematics, business, social science, humanities, physical and life sciences, natural resources, and engineering. Participants are expected to come from more than 300 colleges and universities representing almost every state in the nation.

NCUR draws about 2,000 undergraduates, faculty, and
administrators to hear and discuss undergraduate creative and scholarly work by means of topical sessions of 15-minute oral presentations, interdisciplinary poster sessions, and artistic performances and visual art exhibits.
