This is a quick start guide to learning about how the Office for Undergraduate Research & Artistry serves students, faculty, graduate students, departments, and the University.

OURA is excited to host development workshops for undergraduate research and artistry students.  These are designed for students just getting their feet wet into a research group, those getting ready to present their work, and everyone in between.

The experience allows students to distinguish themselves as undergraduate scholars in their disciplines. The opportunity is open to all undergraduate students in good academic standing who have had at least two full semesters in a mentored research experience. Submit an interest form today.

The mission of OURA is to serve as a resource at Colorado State University to promote and expand experiential learning for undergraduate students through research, artistic, and other creative experiences with skilled mentors. We embrace CSU’s Principles of Community in our daily work and highly value the contributions of all undergraduate researchers and artists in any and all disciplines across all 8 colleges. OURA’s vision is to provide opportunities for all undergraduate students to discover, realize, and act on their interests and passions. We are continually challenging ourselves to view all OURA programs and initiatives with an equity lens and to center underserved students in all that we do. A core value of OURA is that our success will be the result of intentional efforts that are focused on equity and inclusiveness paired with assessment and revision. OURA views diversity, equity, inclusion and justice (DEIJ) efforts as inseparable from our work.
