Undergraduate Research Community (URC)
The Undergraduate Research Community is sponsored by the Kappa Omicron Nu Leadership Academy and was formed in partnership with the Board on Human Sciences, the National Association of State Universities and Land-grant Colleges (now Association of Public and Land-grant Universities), the Council of Administrators of Family & Consumer Sciences, AAFCS–Higher Education Unit, and the 1890 Council of Administrators. The URC provides a framework and a community to augment the scholarship of learning and teaching in preparing students for graduate education, the workplace, and responsible citizenship. It serves as a catalyst for increasing the experiential content of undergraduate education in the human sciences. In other words, the URC advances both undergraduate student development and a national undergraduate research agenda for the human sciences.
