Call for Submissions for the Fall 2014 issue of the CUR Quarterly:
“Undergraduate Research in Support of Sustainability”
The theme of the Fall 2014 CUR Quarterly will be on mechanisms and models that focus undergraduate research efforts on issues of sustainability in all forms. We seek 4 to 5 authors who can write articles that address issues about creating, implementing, sustaining, and assessing undergraduate research experiences to support sustainable practices, systems, and educational efforts. In addition, we welcome shorter vignettes (300 words) that offer concrete, creative suggestions on how to connect undergraduate research programs to campus or community sustainability initiatives.
Examples of topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- · Models for developing institution-wide initiatives to increase undergraduate research on sustainability.
· Models that utilize sustainability as a mechanism for engaging undergraduate students in authentic interdisciplinary research experiences.
· Utilizing sustainability research to connect undergraduate research and service learning programs.
