Call for Student Editors: UReCA

Hello, my name is Thomas Wiegand. I am the Managing Editor for UReCA: the NCHC Journal of Undergraduate Research and Creative Activity. UReCA is growing quickly, and we’re looking for help with editing the 2019-2020 journal. We want to bring on new student editors as part of the national team.

We are searching for undergraduate students from NCHC-affiliated programs with a keen interest in the selection, acquisition, and editing of research pieces, articles, creative works, and visual art. Prior editing experience is preferred, but not required.

The selection of editors for UReCA is a competitive process and applications should consist of the following: 1) resume, 2) Honors Director recommendation, and 3) statement of interest (1-page).The deadline for application is January 31st, 2019. All applications will be processed through our submission portal at

Serving as an editor with UReCA includes a three-day summer editing boot camp and participation at either the national or a regional NCHC conference. The sponsoring college should commit to funding attendance at one of the conferences, but UReCA will fund the boot camp. This year’s summer event will take place in scenic Bryce Canyon, Utah, June 7–9.

Please pass this along to your students. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at
