Colorado Springs Undergraduate
Research Forum (CSURF)

The Colorado Springs Undergraduate Research Forum (CSURF) is a collaborative venture designed to highlight the accomplishments of      undergraduates from Colorado College, the United States Air Force Academy, and UCCS.  In its twelfth  year, the conference has grown to over 450 participants and continues to reflect the commitment and dedication of our faculty and staff to our students from all disciplines-the Arts, Humanities, Natural and Social Sciences.  The event gives undergraduate students from all three institutions the opportunity to present their research and creative work in a formal academic setting and receive feedback from scholars and peers. The CSURF also helps students to polish the skills involved in formal presentation, job interviews, or continuing education through graduate/professional study.

The 2015 CSURF is part of the UCCS 50th Anniversary Celebration, and highlights the College's commitment to faculty/student undergraduate research.  LAS developed this research forum, and has continued to foster and cultivate the collaboration between Colorado College and the United States Air Force Academy.  We are honored to include tCSURF program as part of our Peak Learning Experiences program - designed to provide experential learning opportunities for every student, in every major of our college.
