New College Undergraduate Inquiry and Research Experiences

This year’s NCUIRE research symposium has been cancelled. While it is important to celebrate student research, we are following the direction of public health officials to maintain social distancing. This does not mean that NCUIRE is being shuttered in any other way. NCUIRE will continue next year and we look forward to future amazing research mentorships.
