The Office for Undergraduate Research and Artistry

"For the things we have to learn before we can do them,
we learn by doing them."  —Aristotle

The application of newly gained knowledge plays an essential role at research-intensive universities, enhancing both learning and teaching.

CURC ParticipantOperating within the Institute for Learning and Teaching, the Office for Undergraduate Research and Artistry (OURA) is designed to complement existing programs that bring undergraduates together with faculty and industry mentors.

It is our primary mission to serve as an interface among students, faculty, and industry; ensuring that all CSU undergraduates have access to opportunities to explore their interests—and to obtain concrete experience—in research, artistry, and other forms of creative work within their respective disciplines.

Committed to supporting programs that promote student awareness and involvement with such opportunities, OURA maintains a close relationship with the Office of the Vice President for Research and the Office of the Provost.
