Welcome to the Colorado Springs Undergraduate Research Forum

CSURF is a collaborative venture designed to highlight the research and creative works of undergraduates from Colorado College, the United States Air Force Academy, and the University of Colorado Colorado Springs (UCCS).  Each year the conference rotates between these three institutions.  UCCS will host CSURF 2019.

The College of Letters, Arts & Sciences (LAS) at UCCS developed this research forum over 16 years ago, and has continued to foster and cultivate the collaboration between the three institutions and their undergraduate students. 

Along with the traditional Poster and Talk presentations, you will experience Elevator PitchesIgnite Talks, Visual and Performing Arts "special spaces",  and Themed Interactive Sessions. 

The Dean and faculty of LAS are honored to include the CSURF program as part of the Peak Learning Experiences program - designed to provide experiential learning opportunities for every student, in every major of our college.
