Welcome to the Colorado Springs Undergraduate Research Forum

CSURF is a collaborative venture designed to highlight the research and creative works of undergraduates from Pikes Peak Community College, Colorado College, the United States Air Force Academy, and the University of Colorado Colorado Springs (UCCS).  Each year the conference rotates between these institutions.  The United States Air Force Academy will host CSURF 2020.

The College of Letters, Arts & Sciences (LAS) at UCCS developed this research forum in 2003 and has continued to foster and cultivate the collaboration between the four institutions and their undergraduate students. 

Along with the traditional Poster and Talk presentations, you will experience TED-style 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.



We are very sad to say that CSURF 2020 has been cancelled.  Please see the announcement below.

Dear CSURF attendees and student presenters,

As a result of the increasing vigilance, both worldwide and in Colorado, that institutions of higher education are exercising towards COVID-19, CSURF 2020 has been cancelled.   This precautionary measure is being taken out of concern for the health and safety of cadets, students, and faculty from the participating institutions, and the Colorado Springs community.

Please check with your college representatives about further options regarding student research.

If you have any questions, contact Margie Oldham (moldham@uccs.edu).

As always, we appreciate your support of the Colorado Springs Undergraduate Research Forum.
