Welcome to the UCCS Office of Research web site. Research is central to the mission and identity of this great university. It is thus no surprise that in 2019, UCCS was classified as a "High Research Activity" university by the Carnegie Foundation. UCCS takes pride in being the only higher education institution in Southern Colorado that explicitly includes research as part of its mission. UCCS's reputation is enhanced by participation in research, publications, grants, performances, as well as national and international conferences and exhibitions. Our office is thrilled to support the surging research agenda at UCCS and is committed to fostering research and creative excellence among our entire campus.
