1.  Undergraduate Research (CUR) membership – message from Susan Mendoza



As some of you are aware, GVSU has increased its institutional membership level for the Council on Undergraduate Research to an enhanced membership for the 2010-2011 academic year.


This increased level of membership allows for any GVSU faculty member to be a member of CUR with no additional cost.  As you are a current member of CUR, please note this will allow you to renew your membership for next year without paying any additional membership fees.


If you have any hesitations, please do not hesitate to contact me directly.


Warm regards,

Susan Mendoza
Director of Integrative Learning
Brooks College of Interdisciplinary Studies
