The Steering Committee consists of representatives of Australasian member institutions (indicated by * on the following list), individual experts in undergraduate research, and representatives of other universities and organisations for undergraduate research worldwide as invited by the Executive.
The Steering Committee provides advice to the Executive regarding the ongoing reputation and progress of ACUR. Members of the Steering Committee encourage the spread of undergraduate research in their institutions, assist in disseminating information about undergraduate research in general and ACUR in particular in their own institutions, encourage participation in ACUR conferences and colloquia, and in choosing best posters for Posters in Parliament when appropriate, and provide information on current practice, items of news and upcoming events in undergraduate research for the ACUR Newsletter (URNA).
