Submitted by Tanis Dagert on November 9, 2020 - 9:31am

On November 12, post to Twitter and use the hashtag #URExchange and get involved in the conversation about undergraduate research. Why? Because Kendra challenged all other universities in Canada to participate in the Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR) ‘Twitter Takeover’ as a way to share and empower undergraduate research (UR). You can share whatever stage of the research process you find yourself in, or the impact of COVID on your research, a thank you to your mentors/faculty/institution, or anything else that's on your mind about this topic.
