The Pro Vice-Chancellor (Student Learning) Philippa Levy has established a new initiative, the Beacon Conference of Undergraduate Research (BeaCUR). BeaCUR, which she hopes will become an annual event, will be held this year in August at the University. The deadline for abstracts is Friday 5 June 2015 (week 12) and I ask that you promote this opportunity enthusiastically to your undergraduate students.

The Office of the DVC&VP(A) will then fund prize-winning students to attend the Australasian Conference of Undergraduate Research (ACUR). Undergraduate research through initiatives such as BeaCUR will continue to be strategically important to the University, and BeaCUR promises to be a good opportunity for you to showcase the work of your students and staff at a local and national level.
