The benefits of undergraduate research are well established in the literature, and many colleges and universities are now fully embracing undergraduate research as a means to enhance student learning, prepare students for graduate school, foster interdisciplinary collaboration, and promote community engagement. The spring 2020 issue of Scholarship and Practice of Undergraduate Research (SPUR) will examine undergraduate research for the twenty-first century. How is undergraduate research preparing students for the workforce? What role does technology play in undergraduate research? How can undergraduate research address the complex sociopolitical problems of the twenty-first century?

Shapes of Futures

  

What is realised in my history is not the past definite of what was, since it is no more, or even the present perfect of what has been in what I am, but the future anterior of what I shall have been for what I am in the process of becoming.

Jacques Lacan

The past, like the future, is indefinite and exists only as a spectrum of possibilities.

Stephen Hawking
